Orthodox churches in Pattaya - 2 pieces

Orthodox temples in Thailand are not so rare. They are on Samui (here) and Phuket (here), there are also in Pattaya. At this resort, there is such a large Russian-speaking community and so many wintering men, not to mention tourists, that the presence of an Orthodox church is quite appropriate here.

Orthodox temples in Pattaya

By and large, in Pattaya there are 2 Orthodox churches. But one of them is outside the city. The second, or rather, the first one built in Pattaya and the only one in the city, is the Church of All Saints. The temple building is white, two-story, with a small bell tower. The temple stands on a very small area. Some Orthodox shrines are kept in the church - a miraculous image, particles of the relics of the Holy Apostle Andrew the First-Called and St. Blessed. Matrones of Moscow (to which in Moscow many kilometers of queue). The paintings inside the temple were made by Thai masters, and the rector of the temple, Archpriest Daniel Bath was a native Thai, studied at the St. Petersburg Orthodox Theological Seminary. At the temple there is a Sunday school for children of the parishioners and there is a rather extensive library in Russian, which includes liturgical books and Russian classics.

Second, the Pokrovsky Temple is built at the entrance tocalled the “Russian” settlement, Ban Dusit (Baan Dusit Pattaya Lake). In this place, many Russian families bought houses, so the appearance of the church here is quite logical. The Pokrovsky Temple is rather new, it was consecrated in 2014. It stands between the tennis courts and the Russian restaurant. It can be clearly seen from the road to Wat Yan. Service in this temple leads father Michael. There is a church shop at the temple.

Right next to it are two cell phone towers, you can navigate by them. And right outside the temple, there is a large wasteland with a local market.

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
