These rare color photos by Sergei Mikhailovich Prokudin-Gorskii document the Russian empire between 1909 and 1915. With the support of Tsar Nicholas II, Prokudin-Gorskii traveled throughout the Russian empire in a specially outfitted train car conducting a photographic survey, according to the Library of Congress, which owns the original slides.

Amazing.

 

It's funny, because they look "fake" to me since I'm used to seeing those images in b&w.

They are amazing. Thank you for posting the link.  Russian history is a favorite study of mine so these pictures are really interesting.
