Russian Empire - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Russian Empire (also All-Russian Empire, Russian State or Russia) was a state that existed from 1721 until overthrown by the short-lived liberal February Revolution in 1917.[4] One of the largest empires in world history, stretching over three continents, the Russian Empire was surpassed in landmass only by the British and Mongol empires. The rise of the Russian Empire happened in association with the decline of neighboring rival powers: the Swedish Empire, the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth, Persia and the Ottoman Empire. It played a major role in 1812–14 in defeating Napoleon's ambitions to control Europe, and expanded to the west and south.

Pretzel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A pretzel ( listen (help·info)) (German: Brezel) ( listen (help·info)) is a type of baked bread product made from dough most commonly shaped into a twisted knot. Pretzels originated in Europe, possibly among monks in the Early Middle Ages.[1] The traditional pretzel shape is a distinctive nonsymmetrical pleasing form, with the ends of a long strip of dough intertwined and then twisted back into itself in a certain way ("a pretzel loop"). Pretzels now come in different shapes. Salt is the most common seasoning for pretzels, complementing the washing soda or lye treatment that gives pretzels their traditional "skin" and flavor through the Maillard reaction; other seasonings include sugars, chocolate, glazes, seeds, and/or nuts.
