Drawing on a trove of never-before-shown historic photographs, this virtual tour of Czarist Russia spans the earliest days of photography in the 1850s to the fall of the regime in World War I. High resolution original stereophotos will be projected in 3 dimensions, as they were intended to be seen. See serfs in the squalor of 19th-century Russian peasant villages, bustling ports and cities of the new merchant classes, the glittering life of the czar and his court, and the wars and struggles that signaled the end of the empire. Through the magic of 3D, you can stroll the streets of Moscow, view houseboats in St. Petersburg, visit ancient monasteries, walk through villages and farms, visit with Tolstoy and his long-suffering wife Sonia, and stand in the trenches with conscripted Russian soldiers. This is a never-to-be-forgotten chance to see the once hidden and now vanished worlds of Russia’s storied past. Presented by Photoarchive3D (www.Photoarchive3D.org), a freshly digitized archive of 30,000 historic photographic images.
