Rasina Church

Rasina Kirik

Rasina church lies derelict, after having been misused as a farm during the Soviet occupation. There is a storknest on what remains of the spire.

Communist ideology did not tolerate religions, as a result churches were often used for other purposes during the Soviet occupation. Often as wharehouses or farms. Little could be more sacrilegious than keeping cows in a former church. In some ways communism had traits of a religion, for instance it held to certain truths that could not be questioned. Maybe it is not that surprising that it was intollerant towards other beliefs.
