The ORTHODOX CHURCH in CHISINAU....The Orthodox Churches throughout the region are so very beautiful. However, they always surprised me by their size. No, they weren't huge. They were cozy and tiny. If you attend a service in the Orthodox Church, you stand. I was told that only old women sat. There were no rows and rows of pews.

The devout came to the church to pray, light candles and frequently kissed the portrait of saints.
