It would be natural to imagine that dealing with the fierce climate in Antarctica leaves little time for religion. But as RT found out during a visit to the southernmost continent, that is not the case. ­Perched atop a picturesque, rocky hill overlooking the sea, sits a typical and tiny Russian Orthodox church. The scene, which looks like it was taken right out of a Siberian picture-book, is in fact one of the views of Russia's Bellinsghausen Polar Station. So far, this is the only Russia's Antarctic station that has a church. This makes the Trinity Church the southernmost Russian Orthodox church on the planet.
