Walked in during prayer

Although looks tiny at least 12 people were inside I wasn’t amazed by how well preserved everything was because the church is relatively new, bu was amazed at the craftsmanship the interior has considering it was made in the 22st century.

A mini chapel
Mar. 2019
This is a small chapel located at Resurrection Gate, on Red Square. Many people have incorrectly posted photos of St. Basil's Cathedral. The Chapel of Iberian Icon of Our Lady is less than one-tenth the size of St Basil's. I have seen some other small chapels in Russia, one being in Yekaterinburg.

Symbol's return
May 2018 • Solo
A small, very revered and perhaps the most long-suffering chapel in Russian Church history. Repeatedly destroyed, suffered in fires and even demolished - along with the triumphal Resurrection gate, through which the Royal entrance to the main square of Russia - Red square  was taking place. The same is with the spisok (copy) of the icon of the Iver mother of God, brought from the monastery on Mount Athos in Greek Halkidiki. Moreover, just as unenviable was the fate of its copies, built in Tomsk, China's Harbin - the patrimony of Russian immigrants - and in the Serbian capital Belgrade. At the end of the last century this chapel was restored together with the Resurrection gate. It can not boast of aesthetic perfection, but its return is of great historical, cultural and ritual importance. This is the return of the symbol.

Very small chapel near the entrance to Red Square
Oct. 2017 • Solo
This is really a very tiny chapel located at the base of the Resurrection Gates near the entrance to Red Square. The chapel itself is small and not really that exciting, especially when you have St Basil's and the glorious churches inside the Kremlin itself within close proximity. A quick visit is more than enough.

A tiny chapel.
Oct. 2017 • Couples
This is a tiny chapel, which is located just outside Red square.
It doesn't take more than a minute to peek inside, so you might as well do just that.

Beautiful Small Chapel

This chapel is very small and very beautiful. Services are held here. This is a nice place to stop in on your way into the Red Square.
