Vilniaus staciatikiu Sventosios Dvasios vienuolynas, Vilnius
Categories: Churches, Tourist Spots
Lithuania's most important Russian Orthodox church, the Baroque-styled Vilniaus staciatikiu Sventosios Dvasios vienuolynas sports a richly colored interior and the remains of three Orthodox saints. There has been a church here since 1567, but a series of events lead to the site's reconstruction in the mid-18th century. Inside, you can admire the detailed stucco work, sculptures, frescoes, and emerald green iconostasis. A reliquary in the center of the building is home to the remains of St. Anthony, St. Eustatius, and St. John, adorned with red robes on special occasions. Women attending a service may wish to bring a scarf to cover their head, as is customary.

Green! Made of green is used, such as white, gold, and silver. Also the ceiling is not in white or pink light blue base, anyway I felt richer color. Is done before the altar of the three Saints is more than 600 years ago, so I think that was very small. And beautifully dressed, and felt so divine. It was often surprised by sculptures such as a little unusual but Church. Entrance gate in a pink lovely, pale yellow is at the entrance of the Church. Everywhere were filled with color.show original
