Good choice, mine would probably look similar, although any particular time period for the USSR? The early days and the final ones were pretty grim.

Guess Ottoman Empire or Yugoslavia would have also been interesting

Around 1945, after the defeat of Germany. The patriotic feeling must have been something else. The time round Stalin died when Kruschev etc were vying for power would be interesting for a more influential soviet person.

A good era yes, I think realistically if you were living under the soviet union stalin's death would have been a very sad time and would have had a great impact on one's life.

Alternatively, I guess russia (soviet russia) after and during the revolution of october must have been an interesting time.

I would love to visit Ancient Rome - not to live there permanently, just for a visit. When I was studying Latin at school, I always wished we could do a Latin exchange.

England - 1900-1913 and 1920 onwards... Totally no particular reason why I'd skip 1914-19...

I've got into watching Downton Abbey recently and it seems like a quite chill time; women's rights starting to kick off, British Empire seems to be doing pretty well, no major conflicts (yet).

1920s Britain if I had lots of money. It would be like living on a poirot set. Plus I may get to meet my heroine, Agatha Christie

Medieval England, or maybe Japan pre-ww1 (1880/1890s), just because both areas/timeframes seem exciting and v. different to now.
