More want!

Ooo, pretty! And some people wonder why I like medieval (and pre-20th century) Russia. Can you imagine living with this type of beauty around you? Makes the cold (and the oppression, and the Oprichniki, and the terem, and the Orthodoxy...) almost bearable. Go look at these gorgeous interiors and exteriors!

Ask me sometime about my family's experience with pre-20th century Russia.  It wasn't so pretty.

unfair, we are discussing architecture, not human rights records. not that russia at any time had an amazing human rights record.
