    Kizhi Island

    October 7, 2017 in Russia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Kizhi is a site for gathering and worship long before Christianity came to Russia. Most of the buildings (not all) were built here. Mist significant is the cathedral of the transfiguration with its 22 domes. It is under restoration, but I included a pic of the sign showing the complete cathedral. Built in 1714 with no mails, wooden pegs only. The rest of the site is an open air museum of architecture with 80-some examples of wooden architecture from various areas of the country.Read more
