Studies in the history of Taiwan have somehow been relegated to the periphery of Oriental Studies in Russia; and the ethnic history of the island in particular have occupied a still more modest spot within them. Yet research on Taiwan has been carried for nearly 200 years in Russia, has its achievements, and deserves a special essay in historiographic study.

This article examines the writings by Russian travelers and scholars who visited Taiwan in the late 18th – early 20th centuries.
