Orthdox Church of the Holy Spirit

Orthdox Church of the Holy Spirit

This was one of the very few Orthodox churches we visited that allowed photographs to be taken, although we found a tour group to go in with just for good measure. The interior was truly spectacular; the exterior was nice, but nothing as beautiful as the inside. This was a side altar.

Very beautiful church. It looks very narrow. Is it? or is the narrowness an illusion?

Well composed image with good detail too. Impressive interior. The use of so much green decor would be unusual in an English church. V.
