The Roman Catholic Cathedral is the only place in the capital of Russia where the atmosphere of the real church and the sounds of a large pipe-organ combine. A neo-gothic “Piece of Europe” in the center of Moscow is visited annually by more than 120 000 listeners. They enjoy organ, ancient, classical, spiritual and modern music. Concerts in the Catholic Cathedral of Moscow are held in free time from worship and are open for any people to visit. The organizer of the concerts is the charitable foundation “De Boni Arte”.

Especially if there is some organ music concert going on. You will not regret it, plus it is a great chance to meet new people: concerts are normally being visited by a lot of expats who live and work in Moscow.

With just 2 days in Moscow, my excursion was definitely packed! The cathedral was a great place to visit while around the southern part of Moscow! Many pigeons were there eating even in October. Then you can find lots of tourists there too! Fascinating!

The neighborhood is divided into two major halves by
Krasnaya Presnya street: the southern part highlights
Moscow city – businesses contained in skyscrapers
along with the White House - where the Russian
government works. The north is a bit more relaxed and
casual, visitors here will find the Moscow zoo,
National Centre for Contemporary Arts and a number of
fine restaurants. The beautiful neo-gothic Cathedral
