Russian Churches In Winter

Belfry serves as a water tower as well.

And as a warehouse for empty containers for holy water.

Everything’s signed just as in the army.

Belfry is a really cluttered place.


Tool for watering the flowers hung high above the floor.

A box with the “collection” of holy relics.


Welcome to the “Piligrim” cafe.


Happy son and proud father.

Strange but still beautiful house.

    Build more churches and less retail stores. The churches look better

    A. Bunka here. Since some 5 year old has stolen my name and placed insulting messages here this will be the final posting of the REAL A. Bunka.

    This Beautiful church is a symbol of all that was wrong with the revolution. This church is a product of Russian culture. If this church had been in Moscow, or St. Petersburg, it may have been blown up like so many others.

    It was in light of these extreme actions of the bolsheviks that the west turned against them. What was the west supposed to do? Hadn’t the bolsheviks murdered the Czar and his in family in cold blood, without even the decency of a show trial? As the French had given Louis?

    Do we need to mention the murder and exile of millions by the hero Lenin?

    The fact is the USSR, and it’s siege mentality, labeled the Russians as: boorish, uncompromising, liars. This was your image worldwide, the only people who thought otherwise were blinded by idealogy.

    Socialism was just a nice word for a state controlled economy. Just like in NAZI Germany. When the state controls the economy, it controls everything.

    You can argue till doomsday, it dosen’t change this fact.

    A. Bunka signing off.

      I am the real A. Bunka. Although my doppelgänger above makes valid points, he is using my good name to get his point across.

      I will not be departing this forum, I have to carry on educating the masses on the evils of Socialism and the Socialist way of life. I will not be leaving for a long time.

      The Real A. Bunka saying TTFN.

  4. Wishful thinker says:

    This and the other recent post about the Russian Orthodox church made me wonder: What were the Russians doing around the time of the Crusades? Did any notable individuals or groups of Russians join the other “Christian” forces in the Holy Land or the routes leading to it? I feel a little silly for not knowing the answer to that. I guess it’s my Western-focused education getting the best of me. If anyone knows any good information sources related to my question, please tell me.

  5. very eye catcher church……I never thought that Russia has a beautiful and artistic church…..for sure many religious follower will come here.
