11 March, Wednesday

On March 11, 1918 the capital of the country was transferred for the last time in the history of modern Russia

The transfer was initiated by the new Bolshevist government for a number of the closely intertwined social and geopolitical reasons. Even though Petrograd (Saint Petersburg) had become the so-called «cradle of a revolution», it was the most probable place for a counter-revolutionary rebellion.
