  INTERIOR OF ORTHODOX CHURCH
by matcrazy1
 
 

There were no pews inside orthodox churches, including interior of Znamienska Orthodox Church. There were a few prayers, everyone was standing, though most of the worshippers were elderly women.

The church had a high ceiling, maybe fifteen meters (fifty feet) high, with domes that went up higher. There ware tables with candles and pictures of saints hang above (altars). There were beautiful chandeliers and paintings edged in gold.
