We walk again along Nevsky Prospekt, St Petersburg’s main thoroughfare, where the marches and demonstrations started on Womens’ Day 1917.These uprisings over the simple demand for bread gathered momentum and the revolution quickly became as unstoppable force. At the Field of Mars we see where the “honoured dead” of the revolution were buried and memorialised.
