    Thank you Carmen.
    Kazan has about 1,5 million inhabitants and its population is composed of Tatars and Russians (both a bit less than 50%). Also some ethnic minorities like Ukrainians are living there. While nearly everybody speaks Russian, Tatars also speak Tatar. Major religions in Kazan are Sunni Islam and Eastern Orthodoxy. In the historic past, relations between the two religions were not always the best but now it is evident that today Tatars and Russians maintain good relationships. The multi-ethnic city is honored by UNESCO (UNESCO Cities for Peace Prize) and famous for Muslims and Christians living side-by-side in peace. The October revolution and the following antireligious persecutions therefore interrupted and substantially changed traditional religious life; faith and religious practice retreated from the public to the private sphere and the tight connection to the church loosened to a certain extent. However, there can be no doubt that Orthodoxy survived seven decades of Soviet atheism. Churches are being re-erected or built anew throughout the Russian Federation, young people regularly go to services or Sunday schools, and even the contacts between the Church and Russian politics seem to intensify.

    At Christians the bride and groom have an optional traditional ceremony in a church. In Russian this is called the venchanie. The wedding ceremony takes place in a church and is divided into two parts: the Betrothal and the Crowning. In the Eastern Orthodox Church Holy Matrimony is considered a Sacred Mystery (sacrament), and the sign of the marriage is not the exchange of rings (that takes place at the betrothal) but rather the placing of crowns on the heads of the bride and groom. For this reason the ceremony of the wedding is referred to as the Crowning.

    Our Lady of Kazan, also called Theotokos of Kazan a holy icon of the highest stature within the Russian Orthodox Church, representing the The Black Madonna Virgin Mary as the protector and patroness of the city of Kazan.
