Wooden churches in Kizhi built without nails

Kizhi island, russian architectural masterpieceThe 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.

Earlier it was called “subcapital Siberia”, a reference to this region of peaceful birds, blue lakes, bubbling rivers and innumerable islands overgrown with woods.
Petrozavodsk, the capital of Karelia, is located approximately 300 km from St. Petersburg on the most westerly bay of Lake Onega, the second biggest in Europe after Lake Ladoga.

68 km from Petrozavodsk lies the island of Kizhi, not the biggest, but the most famous of all the 1,650 islands in Lake Onega.
