Over the last decade Moscow became the melting pot where various cultural and religious traditions can be found in  blend and coexistance. Despite the dominant Orthodox church you can find the traces of other religious confessions  in the city.

We start our tour in the center of Moscow, close to the area where the Jews used to live in the past.  We’ll visit the Choral Synagogue that recently celebrated its 100 year anniversary. It is a very impressive building, constructed by  a renowned Moscow architect Roman Klein. Surprisingly, this synagogue was the only one that continued to operate throughout the Soviet years.

Our second part of the tour will bring you to the  second largest mosque in Russia. We'll wander around its magnificent halls, and learn about the religious practice of Muslims in Russia.

During the tour of the mosque we’ll have a chance to get to a panoramic platform to come to the level of its beautiful golden dome. The walk on the top is optional since you may only reach the area by foot.
