Taking photos inside the Russian cathedrals is frowned upon/disallowed/against the rules/subject to scolding/just plain forbidden!
But, being the clueless foreigner that I am (not), and sometimes finding myself away from the tour group and/or unnoticed, I was able to capture a few photos of the breathtaking interiors of both ancient and modern Orthodox churches.
Wow…it reminds me of the church up at Stanford University!! Amazing!
old or new, they are beautiful…and still don’t have seats!
No, no seats. Never will be, I’m sure. Just the “granny benches.” LOL!
