A broken clock displays 2:10 a.m
There is a very interesting clock in the White Dining Room of the Hermitage Palace, although it does not tell time. In fact, it has displayed the hour 2:10 AM for nearly a century. The stopped clock reminds us of what happened on October 25, 1917, at 2:10 a.m., when the Bolsheviks arrested Russia’s provisional government. That was the precise moment that Russia became a communist country.
