18.07.2018

The Europe's largest corona lucis, a circular lamp holding tapers lighted on solemn occasions, has been installed in the Church and Monument of All Saints in Minsk. The lamp in the shape of a wheel weighs 1120 kilograms. Its diameter is 12 meters. And this is an absolute European record. The corona lucis at the Church of All Saints was made by Belarusian craftsmen from Lida and consists of 96 lamps. The interior decoration works at the Church are also about to complete. Since November, Russian artists have been working on the paintings. Over this time they have painted more than one and a half thousand square meters. For the first time in history, the motifs taken from the famous historical Slutsk sashes have been used in church decorations.
