I know that I’ve mentioned it before, but it’s worth repeating that Open Culture is one of the most interesting blogs I subscribe to. Today, Open Culture posted video footage of the coronation of Russia’s last czar Nicholas II. Watch the video below.
There was a time when I was doing a lot of reading on Russian history and the history of the Soviet Union. Two the most interesting books I found on the topics and still have in my bookshelves are The Soviet Experiment and Natasha’s Dance: A Cultural History of Russia.
