Magnificent interior view from the center of the new Church of the Resurrection of Christ and the New Martyrs and Confessors of the Russian Church in Sretensky Monastery in Moscow. The church designed in the combination of the modern Russian and ancient Byzantine styles was constructed in 2014-2017 and can accommodate about 2000 worshipers. On its walls are paintings with the faces of the new martyrs. The apse (area of altar) depicts the Last Supper, where both the apostles and the new martyrs are present. The one-tier marble iconostasis made in the Byzantine style. Beautiful big and light wheel-shaped church chandelier (panikadilo) made in the most ancient Byzantium style called “khoros” (Greek).
