St. Basil's Interior Gallery

St. Basil's Interior Gallery

With all the majesty of its external appearance, the cathedral is quite small within. Regrettably, the spectacular interior of St. Basil's Cathedral was badly damaged during its long history by numerous fires and wars. On this picture you can see the interior of gallery (one of corridors which make a circle around the central tower and bind all chapels together) between the Chapels of the Intercession of the Virgin (main, central tower, entrance gates on the left wall) and Saints Cyprian and Justina (entrance gates on the right wall). The walls of the cozy corridor were covered with delicate floral designs at late 17th century, and restored by Briagin in 1930s.

I took this picture in 2005 with my first digital camera Olympus C5060WZ using extra wide angle conversion lenses by Raynox which I bought before to make special pictures indoors. I was very disappointed by the quality of its conversion, how it worked (huge perspective distortion and blur on the edges of pictures. So, after this experiment I didn't used this lenses.. pity about the money I spent on it... but life is life... I tried to correct a little bit here the perspective distortion, sharpeness and, of course levels. I like very much old chandeliers here, hope you too. Enjoy!

We had an excellent experience with Arthur during our trip to Moscow two weeks ago. We found him to be reliable, punctual, friendly, and helpful. When we arrived in Moscow by train, Arthur was waiting outside our train car promptly at 6:30 a.m. When we left by international train, he arrived at our hotel early, took us to the station, and stayed with us until we were safely aboard. During our stay, we had an excellent tour of Sergiev Posad. Arthur also provided interesting and relevant commentary on the sites we saw and could answer any questions we had. Moscow is a fascinating city, and Arthur's services helped us enjoy it to the fullest. We highly recommend him.
