1941 and 1942 were the hardest years for Moscow. The following year of 1943 gave relief to the capital and its life started to bloom again. The Stalingrad battle was won on February 2 and Moscow citizens believed they could defeat the enemy. People began to entertain themselves, celebrate holiday, watch movies and go to theaters and exhibitions. New subway stations were opened in 1943, the Museum of Musical Culture named after M. Glinka and an Institute of crystollography were founded in Moscow.

Relations of the Soviet government and the church were getting better, they chose a patriarch, new cathedrals were opened for believers… That was the year of hope, time to lift in spirits.
