Glimpses of Russia’s Revolutionary Past


Walking around Moscow, one can occasionally spot the old Soviet past peeping out from behind the landscape.  Take, for example, the Marx memorial which has now become a tourist destination.

At the State Central Museum of Contemporary History of Russia, visitors take in old anti-capitalist posters from the revolutionary period.

“Czar, Pope and Kolchak”

In the Arbat District, pedestrians are greeted to the sight of a wall mural featuring Soviet general Georgy Zhukov.
