Picture of the Day


The Temple of All Religions near Kazan, Russia. For the first time, Russian sociologists have compiled an atlas of Russia’s religions. Given the current debate on relations between the church, state and society, this atlas offers a timely and valuable look into the nature of Russian worship.

Kazan, Russia


Just around the corner and down the street we have an open market. I remember watching movies where people would be walking through an open market and would be dreaming about doing this myself. Well it’s no longer a dream but reality.  

Kazan, Russia


This is actually not a church, it’s bell tower. The church itself sits behind it. the street in front of it was become a walking street with an open air mall feel.
