KOSTROMA — Russia's last royal dynasty was honored this Saturday in the ancient city of Kostroma in northern Russia. The first Romanov czar was elected in this city in 1613 AD, the year that put an end to the "Times of Troubles" in medieval Russia.
The enthronement of czar Mikhail Fyodorovich Romanov took place at the city's Ipatievsky Monastery. His dynasty lasted just over 300 years until, in 1917, the Bolsheviks executed Russia's last ruling monarch, Nicholas II, and his immediate family. Various members of the Romanov family were able to flee from communist Russia, and their descendants survived to this day to mark the 400 years of the Romanov dynasty.
Several Orthodox cadets in pre-revolutionary parade uniforms and scouts lined the parkway street across from the nearby Romanov Museum.

Good, I'm tired of hearing Preobrajensky March only on Victory Day.
Ah, yet another "sons of leutenant Schmidt" spin. This sht is uncurable.
I apologize if there are political dimensions. I didn't realize.
Ah, self congratulating "Crunch of French bakery" shoooo nice.
They dumb or what?great national accomplishments under the Romanov rule in the fields of industrial development, education, economics, social rights, labor laws, government
Also education was significantly boosted under the Romanovs. Statistics in 1897 recorded a 70% literacy rate and 60% Children were getting Primary education by 1910. Had the Tsar not fvcked over the Empire by going to war, Universal Literacy was expected to become a reality by 1921.
As about developing, it's not cool to remind about it due to soviet fans butthurt, but it really was. First law about the universal primary education was in 1908. In 1914 there were 123 000 schools. And etc.
The problem is that for Soviets to legitimate their ruling it was(and is) need to describe the Empire like crappy Rashka.
Offcourse it was not the heaven and I'm not fan of monarchy, but I don't see why so many ppl still continuing to repeating all those Bronsteins stamps. It was our country, our history, not only the 70 years of USSR. And it was more our country than modern Russia to be honest.
Jeez, when did I deserve Hammer and Sickle? Can I just gloat about those long dead ruthless assholes and not be a Stalinist at the same time?
