Russian North: Old Wooden Architecture And Mouthwatering Cuisine

Posted on November 20, 2015 by team

This is the Russian north, the Arkhangelsk Region, where asphalted roads are not typical. According to blogger muph, it is always nice to be there.

The Oshevensky tract stretches from Kargopol to Oshevensk. Kargopol is a big city (compared to others in the north), while Oshevensk is actually a bunch of villages united under the same title – Oshevenskoye. This place is undoubtedly another treasure of genuine beauty of Russian nature and old Russian architecture at its best.

Local people are very hospitable, they treat guests to the amazing dishes of Kargopol.

The guests are eating to the full and listening to exciting stories about life in this place today and in previous times.

Don’t you feel hungry?

The dinner for the guests: Russian vegetable soup on bone, baked rice porridge, millet porridge – both with thick milk, omelet, cottage cheese that actually looks like cheese, fish pie (they said the pike had been caught on a silver hook), home-made bread from the Russian stove, sour cream cakes (made from sugar, sour cream and wheat flour), nastoika (drink) from gooseberries and raisins (sugar and yeast free), drink made from honey and cranberry + redcurrant wine.

Wonderful pastries and tea.

It is actually hard to move after eating all that, but we have to see the local architecture… This church was built in 1787.

This metal door did not save the church from two thieves – twenty old icons were stolen.

    Great collection of pictures. They look very peaceful and colorful eventho they are very old places. They remind me of Jesus who died for our sins. This is a very healing blog after all the attacks etc., in the news. Perhaps a few of them can be renovated again for use by locals.
