В 1891 году был подписан указ о строительстве Транссибирской магистрали

After the construction of downtrodden Baikal-Amur Railway was completed, a high Russian official said: “Russia has both feet on the Pacific coast at last.” In this case, April 10 looks to be the holiday of the first foot... On that day of 1891, Emperor Alexander III signed a decree on building railway “running through all Siberia.” This railroad costed the state treasury 1.5 billion golden rubles, yet connected Russia’s central part to Siberia which stopped being the middle of nowhere and place of exile, but turned into the factory, breadbasket region and treasury of the nation. However, it is mainly true for the areas located on both sides of the railroad alone.
