The day before Epiphany… A team of travellers finds themselves in Karelia and decides, on this occasion, to visit some beautiful churches.
Good breakfast in the morning and the team has to leave its temporary home.
Morning frosty sun.
Next destination – Olonets, the village of geese. It’s one of the most ancient settlements of Karelia.
It’s a good tradition to build such bridges here.
A small model of a church.
People are so nice here. They like to decorate their houses with different beautiful things.
