Places of Worship

The Kizhi Pogost wooden churches,  The Church of the Transfiguration and the Church of the Intercession and an pyramidal wooden bell tower. UNESCO WHS.

From Ekaterina, Moscow, Russia

The pogost of Kizhi is located on one of the many islands in Lake Onega, in Karelia, Russia. 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.

Kiži on puukirkoistaan tunnettu Äänisen saari Karjalan tasavallassa Venäjällä. Runsaan viiden kilometrin pituinen ja alle 800 metriä leveä saari on Unescon maailmanperintökohde. Kiži on Karjalan tasavallan merkittävimpiä matkailukohteita ja suosittu koko Venäjän laajuisesti. Kižiin on nopea yhteys kantosiipialuksella Petroskoista, jonne on matkaa noin 70 kilometriä. Kortissa Kristuksen kirkastuksen kirkko, kellotapuli ja Jumalansynnyttäjän suojeluksen kirkko.
