In russian orthodox churches the iconostasis is always deviding the altar , (that is a part of the church that only the priest is allowed to enter, and tourists will never be able to see) and the part of the church that is ment for the believers, and where the service will be held. The iconostasis of Prophet Elias church in Yaroslavl was made of solid gold with great ornaments and decorations and next to it there are 2 extra baldachines, that were made for the Tsar and his wife, who had to stand there just like the ordinary believers (see it in my 4th photo) .

Address: Sovietskaja Ploschads / Sovietskaja square.
Directions: Prophet Elias Church is in the centre of Yaroslavl, at Sovietskaja Ploschads / Sovietskaja square.
