MFS - Strange But True - Places 9


Updated on MFS - Strange But True - Places 9 .
The Kizhi Pogost, as it is known in Russian, is the area inside the perimeter wall or fence and includes 2 large wooden churches and a bell-tower. The entire island of Kizhi is a museum with many historically significant and beautiful wooden and log structures including windmills, chapels, boat- and fish-houses, saunas, barns and granaries, and homes. There are two small villages on the island that are home to a few local farmers. Museum staff also live in the old log homes found in these villages.Read more about this beautiful place on MFS,with videoclip.
