Inside Dormition Cathedral of Goritsky Monastery
Interior of Dormition (Uspensky or Assumption) Cathedral in Goritsky Monastery. The church was built in the middle of the 18th century with all features of Russian baroque architecture that you can notice outside and inside the building including rich stucco work and amazing high screen decorated with icons, iconostas that divides the sanctuary from the nave of an Eastern Orthodox Church. The impressive wooden screen with icons of the cathedral dated to 1759 belongs to the best baroque iconostasis in Central Russia. It consists of five tiers of icons, painted in the New Jerusalem monastery (spiritual center in Moscow Region). Distinguished by the high quality of its craftsmanship, the wooden carved iconostas was adorned with reliefs and sculptures created by Moscow artel of Jakov (Jacob) Zhukov.
