No matter what religion you follow, praying always means going to the holy shrine and worshiping the almighty. But, here is a place of worship that doesn’t await the devotees, instead it itself goes to the worshipers. The Prince Saint Vladimir is the world’s first self-propelled chapel boat. Named after the saint who baptized Russia, the church was built back in 2004 by converting an old boat into a floating church that could make the sacred relics on board accessible to people in remote areas along the Volga River.
The floating church designed to reach even the shallowest waters started the great river voyage on September 13 and will travel around 3,000 kilometers along the shores of the Volga, from the river mouth to Moscow. It will have the captain and ship crew, a priest on board, while sailing through areas that have suffered from drought and terrible wildfires. Apart from the people of the two cities, the sacred boat will also give the inhabitants of small communities along the shores an opportunity to enjoy relics of eight great saints from the era of the Undivided Church.
