Папа Римский в Казахстане

Kazakhstan, you have the mission of being a bridge between religions, between nations and continents. God bless you!

POPE JOHN PAUL II

during his visit to Kazakhstan on September 22-25, 2001

Kazakhstan is a state located in two parts of the world, on the border between Europe and Asia. It extends from the Caspian Sea in the west to the Altai Mountains in the east, where the border with China lies. On the north itborders with Russia, on the south – with Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan. Formerly it was part of the USSR. The country’s constitution defines the Republic of Kazakhstan as a secular state. The main religions represented in Kazakhstan are Islam (about 70% of the population) and Christianity (about 26%), other religions are also present. In Soviet times, Kazakhstan was the place of imprisonment and exile of many repressed (ethnic Germans, Western Ukrainians, Poles, etc.), among whom was a significant proportion of Catholics. After liberation, many of them remained in the republic, thus contributing to the spread of the Catholic faith in Kazakhstan.
