- It is one of the best-known monuments of architecture and art to have been constructed in XII c. Of special value are the ancient Rus frescoes paintings notable for their skilled execution and unrepeatable image-bearing expression. Over 800 sq. m of frescoes have come down to us nowadays. The XIX c. pictorial art composition belonging to the brush of the notable Russian painter M. Vrubel is also world known. Monumental wall painting of the master is extremely expressive and rich in colouring and is striking for spirituality and refinement of artistic expression of the icon executed by him which makes the part of the church marble icon stand. Inexpressibly beautiful icon "Madonna with Infant Christ" is also a creation of Vrubel`s genius. At present Saint Cyril's church is an active one.
