    No Benches

    Kremlin

    It was quite new to me, that in the Russian Orthodox Church there are no benches! The congregation is standing during the whole service! Just a very few seats are reserved for the elderly who are physically not capable of doing this.

    One thing you can fell in love...

    One thing you can fell in love with is a special Orthodox Church music. I personally sang in a choir specialised in this kind of music, and I have some friends who still do. Visiting a church in any Russian city, especially Moscow with its so many churches, try not only look at the beauty of interior, but also listen to music that can be heard during the service.

    Tyoma & Dea

    Whether you wear a headscarf or a cap, it is a sign of respect for women to cover their heads in the church.

    Elokhovskaya Orthodox Church

    This church is located near the Baumanskaya Metro station and not far from Yaroslaval Vokshall or trainstation. I will locate it more precisely and then post more comments later. Thanks.
