Orthodox Churches

The Eastern Orthodox culture has influenced the whole culture of the country and left an enormous architectural heritage. The Orthodox church architecture is a mixture of different styles and has a range of very distinctive features. Some of them look like fairytale palaces, and the others still keep the atmosphere of ancient Rus. You can find all types of Orthodox architecture in Russia: from the early traditional wooden churches to splendid cathedrals looking more like luxury palaces. Many of the top-rated churches serve as museums at the moment, so it is possible to have a guided tour and go deeper into the history of the main Russian religion.
