Angel city

Angel of Siberia – this is an unofficial name of Toboolsk.

As a not religious person I do not believe in angels but if they were real I think they would live in churches. There’s something special about the old and beautiful churches and monasteries scattered around Siberia.

Last night I went inside the Sofiyvsky Cathedral and there was an evening prayer. About 7-10 people were inside and a choir of 5 girls was singing for them.

Tranquility was floating in the air. Quiet voices were raising up and filling up the whole cathedral.

I could sit there for ever watching people but the prayer was over and I had to leave.
