9 January 2013 - RU-1425639 - Bryansk

And 2013 starts with a card from..... Russia! . This time the card was a little bit faster. It took 20 days to travel a distance of 2,027 kms. The card show us an UNESCO site; Kizhi.  




The 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. © UNESCO Worldheritage list
