Question from Maruki, asked on 30 Oct, 2018

Russian culture of the 19th century

This isn't really related to learning the language, but...
Any recommendation what to watch / read to learn how the culture / politic / the people were back in the late 19th century? So far I've only read and watch Anna Karenina, and while I got to see how they dress, some of the culture, I wish to learn more.
Thank you in advance for the suggestions!
