  PLACE TO PRAY IN ORTHODOX CHURCH

Excuse, it's rather orthodox than Vilnius local custom tip.

Such things like on my picture (how to call it in English???) I could find exclusively in orthodox churches like in Znamienska Orthodox Church in Vilnius.
What was that? A place to pray. I saw elederly women on standing position there, there were no pews in orthodox churches. Look at a kind of furniture (table) with a picture of saint (an icon) on its top and with a picture with a text of a prayer hang above. Prayers were written in old Russian language.
