100 aastat kuulsust / 100 years of fame

According famous Soviet legend, with the shot of Russian cruiser Aurora the October Revolution in Russia started 100 years ago - on 7th of November 1917.
Mostly it is agreed now, that there was one blank shot, but probably it was not a signal, because heroic attack of the Winter Palace, known from the movies, just did not happen.
And most of the ship, standing in Sankt Petersburg now, is a replica.
