  PRAYER IN CHAPEL OF THE GATES OF DAWN
by matcrazy1
 
 

I was a little bit surpriced when I saw interiors of many churches full of prayers although it was a business day. Afternoon holy masses were attended by many, mainly but not the only older locals. I think that religion helped many locals to survive hard times of lack of freedom, repressions and poverty in not so old past.

Older women usually put headscarfs over their heads in churches. It's strange but I didn't see them walking along streets but yes, many times inside churches.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
