Resurrection of Christ Orthodox Cathedral of Tirana

Sunday, November 8, 2015

At this beautiful and very special church I was very happy to celebrate my name-day. The temple was pretty big and imposing. It was full of people, and among the faithful you could see a lot of young people. Something intriguing was the fact that there were a lot of people that received the Holy Communion. The whole Service was in Albanian.

What captured my attention the most was that I could see Eastern and Western traditions  coming together. On one side of the church there was a byzantine choir while at the other one a more western-like choir chanting one after the other. It was interesting but can’t say that it really fits my taste.
