On March 11, 1918 the capital of the country was transferred for the last time in the history of modern Russia

The transfer was initiated by the new Bolshevist government for a number of the closely intertwined social and geopolitical reasons. Even though Petrograd (Saint Petersburg) had become the so-called «cradle of a revolution», it was the most probable place for a counter-revolutionary rebellion.
