The history of religious exploration is one of the most mysterious, interesting and deep layers of human culture. For centuries people of different civilizations asked themselves the same - eternal - questions. Who are we? For what do we exist? Where we are going? What is happiness? These questions testify to a striking mystery, about the amazing gift that is inherent only to man - the gift of spirituality.

For Christians, the main answer is the incarnation of Christ, which occurred more than two thousand years ago. Muslims believe that the true God - Allah - has revealed His will through the preaching of His messenger, Muhammad. The Jews revere the ancient Israeli prophets for centuries, the greatest of which was Moses. Each traditional religion has created a rich cultural world - philosophy, literature, painting and architecture. In Russia for centuries, people of different nationalities, cultures and religions are neighbors.

We invite you to get acquainted with the main world religions represented in Moscow, to see and visit their churches and prayer centers.

Afterwards we will go to China Town, where we will visit the representatives of Western Christianity - Lutherans and Baptists. We will visit the Moscow Choral Synagogue - one of the largest Jewish centers in Russia. Continue our tour in the area of ​​Krasnaya Presnya, where we will visit the largest Catholic church in Russia - the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception of the Virgin Mary. However, the Armenian Apostolic Church has always been the closest thing to our country in the course of Eastern Christianity. Visiting the modern church complex, including the majestic Cathedral of the Transfiguration of the Lord and the chapel of the Holy Cross, and the oldest church of the Holy Resurrection, located in the Armenian cemetery, our tour will end.
