Russia’s History through Photographs

История России в фотографиях


The Russia’s History through Photographs project is an an open and public photo archive, which spans almost half a century of Russian history. Here you will find professional and amateur photographs taken in Russia in the period from 1860 to 1999. The project brings together images from different sources.  Any user can use the archive, uploading photos to the site of the home of photo albums.

There are over 70,000 photographs in the archives collection.
