Wooden Church, Kizhi Pogost

Filed under: — lbobke @ 9:00 pm



Unfortunately, my slides from 1980 are already starting to fade, reason enough to scan the most important ones!
This is a picture I took in Kizhi Pogost (Karelia, Russia) back in 1980.
Kizhi Pogost is a museum village displaying the art of Russian wood archtiecture and was recognised as a “Unesco’s World Heritage Site” in 1990.

All the building, including this 22-towered church, were constructed without the use of a single nail!
The surrounding landscape very much enhances the atmosphere of tranquility.
