World’s Only Amber Church to Appear in Russia

Russian Pediatric Medical Academy in St. Petersburg is creating a new wonder of the world – it is planned to turn the hospital church into the only ever amber Orthodox church. Today, September 27, the church’s rector got a cross encrusted with amber and also three icons with their wooden kiots decorated with amber.

However, these are sample icons: later the priesthood and the church’s visitors will choose the style the kiots will be done in. It is planned to fully re-decorate the church inside within the nearest 5-7 years: the iconostasis, ornaments, windows, and even furniture – everything will be made of amber.

Hmm. should be interesting and very beautiful.
