Religion in Russia. Back to Life


We offer you a thematik walking tour in the centre of Moscow, during which you will be introduced to the history of different religious confessions in Russia from the end of th 19c to present days.

Russia has always been multinational country and various religions have been co-existing in its vast territory for centuries.

Before the October revolution in 1917 the Russian church had the great influence in all spheres of life, as Orthodox Christianity had been the state religion of the Russian Empire.

Our meeting point will be the Memorisl Chaple of the Heroes of Plevna.
From there we shall see the church of St. John and the church of St. Nickholas (outside).

During the tour we shall have a look at the Choral sinagogue, the principle and the oldest one in Moscow. We shall walk through its park simbolising the Holy Land.
