Orthodox Moscow

The word “Orthodoxy” means on Greek “right opinion”. Russia was baptized in Orthodoxy in 988. Our ancestors chose it because they were struck by the majesty of interiors and services in Byzantine churches. During the tour we will explore the churches of the ancient Kitay gorod area: the Kazan cathedral — home church of the Romanov dynasty, the St. Basil cathedral, the Bogoyavlensky cathedral — one of the oldest ones in Moscow, the St. Barbara church and St. George church on the Pskov mountain. We also visit the majestic and notorious Christ the Saviour Cathedral. You will learn: — The history of adopting Orthodoxy in Russia — Main landmarks in the history of Russian Orthodox Church — Importance of Orthodoxy to Russian culture — Different types of religious institutes in Russia — Evolution of church architecture — Art of Russian icon-painting — Symbolic meaning of Russian church crosses and domes. Price for 2 people.
