July 28th, 19.30

1000 RUB Find out the meeting point information: Tips@moscowliving.org I am often asked by foreign tourists: "How Russia became such a religious country after almost a century of communism?"

A place of religion in Russians' minds and relationships between the church and the state throughout the 20th century will the theme of this walk, starting from Christ the Savior Cathedral - a symbol of post-Soviet religious revival.


You will:

learn about the man who banned celebrating Christmas,

picture yourself living in a communal apartment based in a former monastery,

take a short course of "scientific atheism" in a university,

and be surprised how being a believer can become a form of a young generation protest.
