Kizhi, an island in Onega Lake in Karelia. There are 1369 islands in this Lake.
Kizhi island plays a special role among the others. Plenty of forestry in
Karelia called for the quick development of wooden architecture. The most
striking monument of wooden architecture represent the manydomed temples of
Kizhi Pogost: the Preobrazhenskaya (Transfiguration) Church with 22 domes
erected in 1714, and the Pokrovskaya (Protection of the Virgin) Church with 9
domes built in 1764.
