Russian Village

Russian wooden architecture is something you can meet in any Russian village all your way through Russia. Here we had already an article about Kizhi wooden churches, the place, the island on Onega lake in Karelia, Russia, where different examples of Russian wooden architecture are collected, from all over the Russia. Today it’s a different story, this is a sample of

Buildings on this photosets are used in everyday life – there are photos of schools, city hall (village hall) etc. This is simple Russian school.

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.

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.

Bomb as an boat anchor.

A man from Logmozero, Karelia (North-West Russia), has used a 25 kg (57 lbs) aviation bomb from World War II as an anchor for his boat. His neighbours have contacted the police because they were scared of the possibility of being blown up accidentally. Police had to evacuate people from four houses situated nearby. The source from the Rescue Service, said that the bomb posed a real threat
for people living in that village.  If it explodes, the splinters can fly for over 500 metres (1600 ft.) from the epicenter. After the inspection, experts said that the bomb was in a working state and could be triggered by sudden actions. Instead of the detonator, there was a metal hook hammered in the bomb by the owner. He tied an anchor chain to this hook.
