10 Russian Venice

Russian Venice

Posted on April 14, 2011 by team

Russian village Kholuy and the Italian city Venice have much in common indeed. Both are famous for great artists and fine museums with precious pictures. And not only a big love for art created an affinity between Kholuy villagers and Venetians, but also water that fills streets, buildings and gardens.

Despite the problems that Kholuy inhabitans face, they say that they like this water environment.

It is like the village distinguishing feature.

Groups of boatmen work in the village during the freshet.

When the water level is high children do not go to school or kindergartens.

    That was one of the bigger floods. Someone asked for a permission for a higher stone foot under his building. They (officials) said no.

    How about dis?

    I’m confused: was it built to be covered in water? From the pictures it just looks a normal village which has flooded. That must be awful for the buildings’ foundations, not to mention dampness and mold.
