Russia - Kizhi Pogost

Lately i got tons of Kizhi Cards - so i've decided to scan this one first, even it's a long way to "R" and Russia ;). Btw: This one is Post #100! One Week, hundert postings - i won't be able to do that much updates in the coming days, but i will try to keep it updated as i got the cards.

The pogost of Kizhi (i.e. the Kizhi enclosure) is located on one of the many islands in Lake Onega, in Karelia. Two 18th-century wooden churches, and an octagonal clock tower, also in wood and built in 1862, can be seen there. These unusual constructions, in which carpenters created a bold visionary architecture, perpetuate an ancient model of parish space and are in harmony with the surrounding landscape.
