The Largest Mosque in Europe

The largest mosque in Europe has opened in the city of Shali in Chechen Republic; up to 30 thousand people can pray there at the same time, and if you take outdoor porches into account, then the number of people can reach 100 thousand.

      During the construction of the mosque, they wrote that it would be named after the Head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov. However, at the opening ceremony, Ramzan Kadyrov announced that the mosque would be named after the Prophet Muhammad.

      The mosque was being built during seven years; the best experts from different countries have worked on its creation. Its characteristic feature is that it is decorated with marble from the Greek island of Thassos. This material is valued for its reflective properties, which can stabilize the air temperature in the mosque in hot weather.
