1.9: What Do...


Question #9: What do the Russian cities of Nizhy Novgorod, St. Petersburg, Volgograd, and Yekaterinburg have in common (other than the obvious, i.e. that they’re all Russian cities)?

(see this post for details)


They were all renamed after the revolution?

Weren't they were all renamed at least twice-- after 1917 and then reverting to their traditional names sometime after 1991? (St. Petersburg got an extra name change-- it was first renamed Petrograd, then Leningrad.)
