A new Church - Main Church of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, "Patriarchal Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ", was recently opened in the suburbs of Moscow.
The church is located only 60km west of Moscow, at Patriot Park and it takes only 55min to get there, depending on the traffic.
The church itself is very impressive because of its sheer size, but also very worth seeing, because of the very unusual mosaic pictures on the church walls, which show soldiers and various battles, but also the variety of decorations and the details inside.
Apart from the church, you can visit a military museum that was built in a circle shape around the church, with a beautiful park.
Moreover, outside the museum walls, a battlefield was reconstructed that looks so real that you get the feeling to stand on a film set. The whole field is crossed by defence trenches, which are allowed to walk trough. Real tanks, old military airplanes and burned down houses, make the whole field look so real, that walking trough the defence trenches become a real adventure for the whole family.
Overall, it is a great day trip for the whole family and for military interested people.
