Cuban authorities, Russian diplomats, Cuban letter men and members of the coordinating council of the Russian community in Cuba took part in the opening ceremony.
Father Vladimir, higher of the Cathedral, explained that the basilica will teach Russian language and history of the Orthodox Church, and, therefore, they will need books and dictionaries.
