The ceremony of laying down the first stone of an Orthodox cathedral and a religious procession in connection with this occasion took place in the Estonian city of Narva on Sunday.
It is planned that the construction of the cathedral’s walls and cupola will be finished somewhere in September 2013. According to preliminary estimations, the construction of the cathedral will cost more than € 1 mln.
There are 32 parishes that are subdued to the Russian Orthodox Church in Estonia, with the total number of parishioners of about 200,000.
