After graduating from the gymnasium in 1871, Korolenko moved to Petersburg and entered the Institute of Technology. The first two years passed in a severe struggle against hunger. In 1874, Korolenko left for Moscow, as he moved to the Petrovsky Agricultural Academy, but he did not succeed in completing it, because he was expelled and then deported for filing a collective protest against the police regime that reigned in the academy. 3 years Korolenko lived in Kronstadt under the supervision of the police. In 1877 he entered the St. Petersburg Mining Institute, but again he was sent first to Glazov, then to Berezovye Pochinki, then to Eastern Siberia, and finally to Perm.
