So there was this one guy with whom we were close friends, and then he started hitting on me. By that time my mind belonged to someone else, however, it did not stop this guy. later one i realized, that i have feelings for him, but it tooke me some time to be ready to show them. I did not want to be broken again.
But I am. He is in love with someone else now, and it hurts so fucking much. Loving someone too late hurts so much.
The last Emperor of Russia, Nicholas II, exchanging kisses with soldiers. Although cheek kissing is not as widely practiced in some parts of Europe, it is still commonplace. It is mostly used as a greeting and/or a farewell, but can also be offered as a congratulation or as a general declaration of friendship. Cheek kissing is associated with the middle and upper classes, as they are more influenced by French culture. It’s a tradition in Russia to kiss on alternate cheeks three times, instead of one or two.
"I will not see the destruction of the Christian converts who are loyal to me, and to my last breath I will fight for the Orthodox faith." -Ivan IV Vasilyevich
January 16, 1547- Ivan IV is crowned the first Tsar of All the Russias, a reflection of his commanding and authoritarian policies. Better known as Ivan the Terrible, he would transform Russia from a backward, medieval nation to an empire spanning one billion acres. He threw back and conquered the Tartar and Mongol hordes that had plagued Russia for three centuries. Despite Ivan’s effective policies, his line died with him due to his rage-induced murder of his heir, Ivan Ivanovich. The problems that plagued Russia during his reign would explode after his death, leading to the Time of Troubles.

"Terrible" I hate this so much! this is SO NOT ACCURATE translation of the russian word "грозный"! "Terrible" completely changes the role of this tsar in our history and in the memory of russian people. If you get rid of all myths (which were made by foreigners and the traitor Kurbsky) you will able to see why he didn`t remain a terrible in national memory!
I think, mor accurate would be to compare him modern autorative leaders, if we talk about Russian nation. However, he was terrible for me - he invaded my land, my country, because people knew, what would happen with them only because they weren’t ready to give up in front of his power and loose their freedom, they decided to blow themselves up. So I keep my rights to call him terrible.
MPERIAL RUSSIA MEME - PALACE [1/3]
The Yusupov Palace on the River Moika ranks with the best architectural landmarks of St. Petersburg. The history of the palace, built in 1760, is associated with one of the most aristocratic Russian families. Prince Nikolai Yusupov purchased the palace on the Moika in 1830. In 1830-38 the architect Andrei Mikhailov radically reconstructed the building for him. Since then every new generation of the Yusupov family, keenly sensitive to the changes in tastes and fashions, introduces new stylistic elements into the appearance of the palace’s interiors.
The home theatre of the Yusupov family is a veritable masterpiece of architecture. It is decorated with a painted ceiling and curtain designed by Ernst von Liphart. The Yusupov mansion is associated with a tragic episode in Russian history. It was there that during the night of 17 December 1916 the famous favourite of the Imperial family Griory Rasputin was killed. [x]
