Russia in the year 1896

Russia, 1896, in Color

Russia. 100 Years Ago. Again. We had it from Russian photographer Prokudin-Gorsky whose photos are being stored in the Library of Congress in USA, but now it's totally different case. Photos were made by Czech photographer while on his travel thru Russia back in
the year 1896. Most of them were lost later due to two wars in Europe and other tragical things but some still managed to survive till our year 2009 and now we can see them here. It's a big pity that there are only such a few of them left.

You probably think you've seen big wedding corteges or celebrations, but for sure those you've seen can't compare with modern Chechn wedding celebrations. Like this one on the video above.
A few police support cars are the must, as well as shooting in the air - that's a tradition. And of course if its in Moscow it's even more fun. sent by Evgeny

A Wedding Present

Sometimes when one is invited to a wedding but he/she doesn't have any money for a present but still in mood to present something "heavy" then this is the idea. Traditionally, in Russia newly married couple waits for something useful as a wedding present.
Often this means they wait money or something that is hundred percent needed in the future household, like a washing machine or TV set. This time the present was really heavy, but people afraid that the newly married won't get it.

That Flat is OK

One guy with his young family had to move to his wife's mother's house. What he found there shocked him deeply. He tried to tell the story to his friends and coleagues but they simply didn't believe him until he made those
photos. This probably what happens when everyone in the family exhausts of motivation of keeping the house tidy. The photo above is how the room of his father-in-law looked like when they moved in.
