Heart of Russia - Churches

Given the historical and cultural importance of religion in Russia, it is only fitting to present to you one of the main architectural highlights that the country is known for. Whether your journey is currently going through villages or cities, there will always be a high probability of seeing churches, cathedrals, or chapels. Let’s take a look at some of them, so you know what you should look out for once you’ll get your hands on Heart of Russia DLC.

The Russian church architecture is unlike any other and it is truly rare to find a style so aesthetically complex anywhere in the world. Most of the churches are distinguished by their verticality, bright colors and multiple domes. A couple of perfect examples will be present in the city of Rybinsk, which is a home to not one, but two such beautiful structures - Ascension Church and Transfiguration Cathedral.

However, sometimes there’s more than the architecture itself, that makes these buildings stand out among their surroundings. The Transfiguration Cathedral in Ivanovo and Church of the Smolensk Icon of the Mother of God in Arzamas will both catch your eye due to their brightly colorful rooftops and patterns on the outside walls. 

And for those who are fans of a more humble style, we promise you will not be disappointed when passing by the wooden chapels in local villages.

If you are in absolute awe after taking a look at these marvelous screenshots, make sure to add the upcoming Heart of Russia DLC to your Steam Wishlist. Don’t worry, no prayer is required. Just have a little bit of patience and eventually, you will be able to see some of these structures in the game yourself!
