St. Petersburg:

7 St. Petersburg In one imperious decree after another, Peter the Great ordered his people to build a city that would equal any in the world, one that had to be Western and baroque. The government drafted 25,000 to 40,000 men each summer to labor in St. Petersburg for three months without pay. Thus, beautiful St. Petersburg was built on the shovelling, carting, and paving of a mass of conscripted serfs. Bartolomeo Francesco Rastrelli (born in Paris, 1700-1771) remodeled the Winter Palace. In this colored engraving (ca. 1760), this handsome building, which housed the royal family until the Russian Revolution in 1917, stands on the left along the Neva River. The Navy Office, with its famous golden spire, and other government office buildings are nearby and across the river. (Michael Holford) St. Petersburg Copyright © Houghton Mifflin Company.

Peter the Great on horseback:

10 Peter the Great on horseback This seventeenth-century painting of Peter the Great (1682-1725) on horseback, by the painter Louis Karavack, celebrates the power and determination of Russia's famous ruler. Most appropriately, it shows him imperiously leading his armies into battle. Peter waged war almost continually throughout his long reign, and the desire to build a large modern army motivated many of his reforms.

In the sixteenth century, Russia began to expand east, toward Siberia and the Pacific Ocean.
