Russian History Documentaries

RTD’s Russian history documentaries allow you to track the world’s largest country from its medieval beginnings to its development as a modern post-Communist state. You can visit ancient cathedrals and palaces, check out the sites of pivotal military victories and defeats, and get to know key heroes and villains in Russia’s diverse history. If you’re more culturally inclined, take a tour of the spectacular Peterhof palace or the world-famous Hermitage art museum. Or hop aboard Peter the Great’s ship to see how Russia’s first Emperor turned a nearly landlocked country into a significant naval power. RTD’s Russian history documentaries bring you the full tapestry of this ancient nation’s legacy.
