St. Petersburg

Religions

In St. Petersburg people of many nationalities have lived side by side for a long time. This has occurred historically, that's why there are different religious confessions in the city.  The city authorities and people of St. Petersburg strive to strengthen inter-confessional relations; therefore, in St. Petersburg all believers have equal rights, everyone feels comfortable and completely safe, regardless of religious beliefs. There is a Buddhist temple, mosque, Lutheran, Protestant and Catholic churches, and a synagogue in the city.
