Dear friends and colleagues!
Radonezh was founded in 1989 as a travel company for pilgrims. Relations between church and state improved greatly during the 1990s, making it possible for us to promote and extend the services we offer to pilgrims and religious tourists.
Recent converts among Russians are beginning to explore our churches and religious life. Radonezh aims to introduce these and other visitors to the rich and varied life of the Russian church. Our pilgrimages are tours based on religious themes and sites, with both spiritual and educational aspects to them.
In 1999 and 2004 the Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia, Alexei II, honoured Radonezh's director Yuri Minulin with the 'Daniil of Moscow and Sergei of Radonezh' award, and his colleagues received a certificate. These awards are important to us as they are a significant mark of recognition from our church.
Since 1990, Radonezh has offered a range of itineraries in the north of European Russia - to the islands of Solovki, Valaam, Kizhi, Kargopol, Veliki Ustyug and to Arkhangel. We invite you to take a pilgrimage around some of these wonderful holy places and monuments, and to gain an insight into Russia's unique history and Christian culture.
Good travels, may God bless you
