One of the successfully completed projects in his time is the construction of the Trans-Siberian railroad, which still remains the largest railway in the world. On the other side, he earned the tag Bloody Nicholas because of disasters like the Khodynka Tragedy, a human stampede that occurred after the festivities of Romanov's coronation which resulted in the deaths of 1,389 people; as well as the day known as Bloody Sunday when Russian troops opened fire on demonstrators asking for better working conditions and more than a thousand people were killed in the process.
