Last Capital of the Russian Empire

Every city has its own historical symbols. These can be either architectural monuments or prominent people of different epochs, who greatly influenced the destiny of their city.

Replying on historical records and facts, one can assert that before the Russian Empire dismantled in 1917 it had had its capital seated in Mogilev for 18 months.

In 1915-1917 Mogilev was there to host the supreme military government – the Tsar Headquarters. Russia’s last Tsar Nikolai II and his family were permanently based in Mogilev during that period. It is not until recently that certain facts of their “metropolitan” life have become known.
