Andronikov monastery  

Another view of the Cathedral in the Andronikov Monastery. The inside still has hardly been touched for restoration. Originally it was covered by frescos created by Andrei Rublov and Daniel Cherni. These are all gone except for small fragments. During the Stalin Purges the monastery was a prison and wooden scafolding on which prisoner's bunks were placed filled the inside.
