Liturgy is generally much different, but from theological view that would be all that comes to my mind at the moment.
I am not too much familiar with theology, sadly, at least not in great details, but, I do know that Holy Mary, Holy Virgin Mary (Svyataya Deva, "Holy Virgin Girl") is one of the holiest figures in the Orthodox Church. The Mother of God, Bozhya Mater.

The Kazan Mother of God icon is one of, if not the most sacred icon of the Church


It inspired Russians to fight to the death in the Battle for Moscow in World War II


So many cathedralы named after the Mother of God.

Moscow cathedral, on Red Square


Kolomenskoe, near Moscow


Reutov, also near Moscow


Zelenogorsk


St. Petersburg, built in European architectural style on orders of Pyotr the Great


Also in Petersburg, Kazan Mother of God Church


In town of Nevskaya Dubrovka, also near Petersburg


Saransk

big cathedral, recently built, already the site of many religious festivals and such

Rostov


Almetievsk, Tatastan

Built in 2007, on a grant donation from Tatneft, the oil company.

Chelyabinsk


Chelyabinsk oblast


Nakhodka (Far East, on Pacific coast)


Etc.

You are wrong, my friend, Holy Mary is very much venerated here. Probably much more than any other figure other than Christ himself.

Do the Orthodox recognize the Vatican's Holy See as a direct line to God, or whatever?

Absolutely not. That is the apparent 'origin' of the split between the two.

See Non's post, point #1 about ecclessiology.

Thanks. Btw, although I'm an atheist, I'm a fan of St. Basil's cathedral. Glad the early commies didn't destroy it.

And I'm glad that the Christians simply took over some of the fantastic Muslim mosques in Spain and didn't just demolish them when they conquered the Muslims there. Some really cool architecture and stonework.

And where have I said something opposite? I said nothing about worshipping her by Orthodox.

You are right, HimHimselfAndHe appears not to have read your post properly.
