On the night of May 4th to May 5th, festivities unfolded in Orthodox churches across Baku and other regions, filled with the rich traditions and ceremonies of the holiday.The Cathedral of the Holy Myrrh-Bearing Women in Baku was the focal point of the celebration, where a festive divine service took place. The night was alive with the traditional Procession, the reading of Easter matins, and the consecration of Easter cakes, embodying the vibrant community spirit.
