St. Petersburg was founded as a multiconfessional city, where people of many nationalities lived side without any religious conflicts or tense relations. Now, as before, city authorities and people of St. Petersburg maintain good inter-confessional relations. All believers in St. Petersburg have equal rights and have places for religious services in accordance with their confessions. St. Petersburg has Orthodox, Catholic, Lutheran, and Protestant churches, mosques, a Buddhist temple, and synagogues.
