From the early hours of the morning, Muslims flocked to the Monument Mosque and Historical Mosque in the capital, especially the Moscow Central Mosque.
A special area has been prepared for the Eid prayers at more than 30 points in the Moscow region.
Those who wanted to pray in mosques in the capital created a density in the surrounding metro stations and streets.
The congregation of thousands of people, which could not fit into the mosques, overflowed into the streets, alleys and parks of meters long, which were closed to traffic for security reasons.
On the streets where the police took security measures, Muslims stood on their prayer mats in the streets where they found suitable for Eid prayers.
Ravil Gaynuddin, Chairman of the Religious Administration of Muslims of the Russian Federation and the Council of Muftis, delivered a sermon and led the Eid prayer at the Moscow Central Mosque.
Gaynuddin read to the congregation the congratulatory message of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Russian Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin and Moscow Mayor Sergey Sobyanin to Muslims in Russia.
The recording of the Eid prayer and the sermon read in the Moscow Central Mosque was broadcast on the Rossiya-1 state channel soon after.
Muslims of Russia also performed Eid prayers in other cities of the country, especially in Vladivostok, Ufa, Kazan and Grozny.
