Russia Decay of Russian churches.

Recommended Posts

Hi! I'm here not very often and frankly speaking sometimes I don't understand how the forum works:) But when I'm here I wanna show you places that are different from the norm you used to. Of cause in my country almost everything is quite different from Europe but maybe the greatest difference turns up in cultural locations.

In the times of USSR our country rejected god. Churches were used like warehouses or schools, icons were painted over or burnt as well as religious books. I'm an atheist but would never understand that blasphemy. A lot of things with historical and antiquarian value were destroyed.

Now the country tries to restore respect to religion but still. Many churches are demolished and even more are abandoned in a very sad state. Amounts of them are situated in small villages that don't have money to restore them.

Here you can see some pictures of such churches.

Well it looks empty and almost broken but maybe it'll be interesting for you!

PS. Mates, maybe in some months I will move to live to another country and won't have an opportunity to white and read the forum. If you are really interested I can spend some more time to show you the places I already visited;)
