The Church of the Transfiguration / Verklärungskirche is the most beautiful building of the museum-island Kizhi and it was also built there back in 1714, a long time before anybody ever thought of making a museum there and it was in use till 1937. At the moment it is under restauration untill 2014 and this is why we were not able to enter this wonderful church with the 22 onionshaped domes. The wooden construction is made of pine-wood and the shindles of the domes are made of aspen-wood. There is a wide fence or rather a wooden wall around this church and another church that is used in wintertime: see it in my next tip !
Directions: The church of transfiguration is in walking distance of about 5 minutes from the ship landing-station.
