Another Cathedral of the Russian Orthodox Church will be erected in Hungary, RIA Novosti informs. Heviz was chosen as a place of its construction.

The corresponding agreement was signed by representatives of the Hungarian Ministry of Human Resources and local eparchy of the Russian Orthodox Church. Moreover, Budapest is going to allocate money for renewal of three orthodox churches. According to this document, Hungarian authorities are donating more than 8 million dollars for this purpose.

Thus, restoration works will be conducted in the Orthodox Uspensky Cathedral of Budapest, in the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity of Miskolc and in St. Nicholas Church of Tokai.

Hungarian Eparchial Bishop Podolsky Tikhon reminded that this major step in relations of Russian Orthodox Church and Hungary has been taken for the first time.

In his opinion, this event is Hungarian people’s contribution into restoration of cathedrals, which are the monuments of national history and culture and into storing Christian traditional values on the European scale.

17 July 1998 was a warm day, abnormally bright for Petersburg. The houses along Moscovsky Avenue let down silk tricolor flags—lowered and joined with ribbonsof mouring. The traffic lights blinked yellow. The avenue, usually lively and filled with cars, was empty; policemen in white gloves stood on ceremonial, one positioned every 50 meters. “What happened?” asked Petersburgers in surprise. “We await the Emperor,” answered the sentries. “Nikolai Romanov.”
Last weekend, Totma—a small town even by the Vologda Region’s standards—marked its 880-year anniversary and celebrated a traditional Russian America Day. The city once prided itself on its salt making and the seafaring merchants who traded in Siberia and America. It was a native of Totma, Ivan Kuskov, who founded Fort Ross in California, and today the town is visited by official delegations from the USA and representatives of indigenous American groups.
