1917 saw the most Russian thing possible. It was during the revolution. The Tsar’s winter palace had just been stormed by Bolsheviks. This meant they were now free to establish the Soviet Union. But that would have to wait. They first had some celebrating to do. Inside the palace was the world’s biggest wine cellar, holding almost 100 million dollars worth of alcohol. So Bolshevik soldiers just began drinking it. Word spread and civilians also began raiding the cellar. There was enough wine that Russia’s capital was full of drunk people for several weeks. It was a 4 week long drunken chaos that only ended when the cellars were empty. This event is known as the biggest hangover in history.
