A secret glance inside Munich’s Greek Orthodox church, Salvator Church, built in 1494. Located close to Odeonplatz, the Gothic brick church was originally a chapel for the cemetery which was moved to outside the city in 1789. Despite its age, and consistent damange through the years, the church is today seat of the Metropolitan of Germany, and the heart of Munich’s Greek Orthodox community. Immediately adjacent to the church is the House of Literature, a centre of a public events focusing on books.

I'm always amazed at how much art has survived over the centuries. Looks like the gold leaf is still quite vibrant. Do you know if restoration has been done? I assume, since you say "secret" this church isn't open to the public? Thanks for the glimpse inside.
