The bell is one of the oldest musical instrument in the world. Unconditionally bells have their own peculiarities in different countries. In Russian the word bell is spoken like kolokol. The etymology of this word dates back to the Old Indian word kalakalas, that means noise, shouts. In Greek the word kaleo means call. The Roman Catholics said kalare, that meant to assemble.

Ringing of bells makes always the feeling of magic strength, wizardry and mystery. This impression is made not so much by clam as by clash of the bell. Bells, which played a certain role in Russian history have given occasion to many beautiful legends.

Bells are a great gift for religious people. They regard it as something given with soul and from all the heart, with love. After all you dont just make a material gift, you put in it that feeling, which you have for this person. In our workshop you can order a gift of the best quality for a priest. A gift for a priest should be chosen especially, with understanding of all of feelings of the faithful person. After all any holiday for such a person is, first of all, a special, internal celebration, a spirit holiday.

The majority of orthodox Christian holidays is preceded by long days of fasting, appropriate ecclesiastical preparation, ruefull feelings, attentive relation to own emotional stress.
