New Military Church - Day trip


Main Church of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation Moscowliving
A visit to the Main Church of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, "Patriarchal Cathedral of the Resurrection of Christ", which only opened on 20 June 2020, is highly recommended. It is perfect for a day trip, as 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.
If you need a break there is also a small café where you can buy food and drinks, but the selection is not big and the coffee is not too great. So if you’re picky, bring your own coffee & snacks.
Overall, it is a great day trip for the whole family and for military interested people.
Have fun while exploring and Enjoy!
