"The Ceiling" St.Peter and St.Paul's Fortress Tip by Sharrie

  Unusual for a church... more like a palace!
by Sharrie

Repainted with cherubim in 1870, the ceiling of the central nave bears attributes of martyrdom.

The cathedral also has large windows, a pulpit & large gilded iconostasis.
It also has the look of a German or Dutch church due to the "lengthy" nave.
