Ancient Wooden Churches Of Karelia Land

1

If you really want to see a lot of old Russian traditional wooden architecture, namely churches and chapels, then for sure you need to visit Karelia. This land borders Finland for over 1,000 km along its length on one side, and like Finland is called “Land of the Lakes” with over 90,000 small lakes. Since the early times people have lived here and built these beautiful, unique wooden churches. Let’s see inside, thanks to the Russian blogger Alexei, who took those awesome photos!

This wooden church is in Sheleiki village. It’s dated to 1783. The early snow is already there in early October. Alexei says it’s very quiet there – your footsteps sound very loud. He walked right up to the church and he was able to look inside. It was empty.
