UKRAINE ~Church of All Saints above the Economic Gate~

Thanks to Alex I got another wonderful card with nice stamps for my Ukrainian cards collection... This time he sent me the outside of a church of which I already have one of its beautiful interior: Thanks a lot!!

Vsikhsvyatska (All-Saints') Church, 1696-98. Located above the Economic Gate in the Ukrainian Baroque style. At the beginning of the 20th century the interior was decorated with pictorial and ornamental oil paintings. Fragments of 17th century paintings have been uncovered. Contains a carved and gilded wood iconostasis from the 18th century. One of the finest monuments of Ukrainian Baroque architecture.
