The virtual tour of Chechnya by Zarema from the tour company, Beyond Red Square, was excellent. Having followed current events in the region, it was fascinating to hear her perspective as someone who lived through the war and has been part of the progress in the country since. Especially interesting were the personal stories of what people have endured and how they have been able to move on and rebuild their nation and lives. The region is beautiful and Zarema's stories of the people and culture definitely put traveling to Chechnya on my bucket list. Being part of a small group of friends made the experience that much more comfortable and enjoyable.

We really enjoyed our visit to Grozny. I had no idea there was such beauty in this region of Russia. The architecture of the central Mosque is quite stunning and the cultural experience was very meaningful. Big thanks to our tour company Beyond Red Square for coordinating such a great day for us in the Caucuses.

Very nice, friendly, beautiful mosque.

Entering the mosque:
Take off your shoes, everything inside is with carpet and very clean. Enter it with stepping in with your right foot.
Men stay downstairs. Women go straight to the right and upstairs. No women allowed downstairs. No special rules for children.
It is allowed to visit a service. It is allowed to take pictures inside. You will be asked to leave your bags outside with guard. But you can take documents and camera inside.

Dresscode for women:
Wear a long skirt/dress, fully cover your legs. Wear long sleeves. Fully cover your arms. Wear a scarf which hides all your hair. You cannot show hair. If you don't have these accessories, you can borrow a wide dress at the entrance and wear it over your clothes. Not sure if they borrow scarfs.

Dresscode for men:
Long pants is a must. Long sleeves not necessary but appropriate.

A beautiful mosque in the heart of Chechnya symbolising the rebirth of this war destroyed city. Peaceful and quiet, great to people watch. Women need to be covered as per mosque protocol

We recently visited Russia and heard about tours that were happening in the North Caucasus. We connected with a tour guide agency called Beyond Red Square, and had an incredible time. They helped us understand the culture of the city we visited and we got to experience this incredible mosque. The mosque was gorgeous and the tour guides explained to us different symbols found in the mosque. I would greatly recommended going to this mosque and using Beyond Red Square for your tour.

It is considered to be one of the main landmarks in Grozny. It is the main mosque, during ramadan the rich people in Grozny offers food for everyone in the big park in front of the mosque. You will love the architecture of it when you see it.

You don't need to be muslim to understand what a beautiful and peaceful place it is.

The exterior walls are adorned in travertine marble, and the interior walls are decorated with white marble brought from Marmara Island (Marmara Adasi in Turkish), which is located on the Sea of Marmara.The "Heart of Chechnya" is the largest mosque in Russia and is one of the largest in Europe.

The "Heart of Chechnya" Mosque can accommodate 10,000 people, and the same number of people can pray on the square in front of the Mosque as well as in the summer gallery. The walls and the dome are skillfully painted by master artisans from Turkey. The inner surface of the main dome is decorated by the words from Surat al-Ikhlas ("The Purity of Faith", the 112th Sura of the Qur'an): "He is Allah, who is one, the eternal God. He neither begets nor is born, nor is there to Him any equivalent".

I strongly recommend to visit our Mosque, which symbolizes Chechnya's "rising from the ashes" mentality and history.
