Incredibly Colorized Pictures That Show the Life of Russian People in the Past

It’s hard to argue that Russia is one of the most distinct countries in the world and a lot of it has to do with its history. Now we have a unique chance to see a glimpse of it in a fresh new way with colorized vintage photos from the Motherland.

Thankfully Russian Flickr user klimbims kept himself busy with colorizing vintage photos that show the life of Russians in the past. Diversity and a whole different perspective on life can be seen in these moments immortalized in time.
