  Icons in Kazan
by filipdebont

Inside the Kazan Cathedral is beautifully decorated with colourful Icons.

By the way, the Cathedral is named after a miraculous Icon, the Icon of Kazan, Mother of God, which was here in the past.
Now this Icon is in the Vladimir Cathedral of Petrogradskaya. Stories tell that this Icon would be responsible for the re-conquest of Moscow on the Polish in 1612.

Sorry, if the picture is a bit shaky, but I must confess that in fact it was not allowed to make pictures in the Kazan Cathedral, so I tried it quickly and without flash.
