With all the majesty of its external appearance, St. Basil's cathedral built on the Red Square in middle of 16th century is quite small within. Its quite narrow gallery inside connects eight chapels around the main church of Intersession of the Mother God (Pokrovskaya). In 17th century the walls of the gallery were painted with beautiful floral ornaments and images of saints to whom each church was devoted. Unfortunately, not many original frescos survived until present days, but many were restored during Soviet times and during the modern history of Russia.
