SOVIET ERA WALKS

They tried to build a paradise on earth…We highlight 1920s — 80s in our historical walks.

 

October 1917 Revolution


100 years passed since October 1917 Revolution which buried the old Russian Empire and brought the Soviet power. Even though the major events of Revolution took place in St-Petersburg, Moscow was a crucial battlefield throughout the October events.

While in St-Petersburg Bolsheviks took power with almost no fight in October, in Moscow they faced fierce resistance. The reasons of such resistance is what we discuss while walking through the major spots of those tragic events.


Besides, we will discuss one of the most surprising facts of Russian history — how Bolsheviks, a tiny weak party even in the beginning of 1917, came to rule Russia in just a few months.
