«Decoration of St. Euthymius’ Side Chapel»

Narrow windows, church chandelier (panikadilo) and beautiful medieval frescoes on the walls are all a part of interior of the side-chapel of the Transfiguration Cathedral (1594), the main church on the grounds of the St. Euthymius monastery of Our Savior. The small chapel was attached to the south facade of the cathedral in 1607-1611 as a small independent church over the burial of St. Euthymius. The murals on its walls were created in 1689 by a team of icon-painters from Kostroma and primarily portray the life of St. Euthymius, and the founder of the monastery, to whom the chapel is dedicated.
