Kizhi Things to Do: 31 reviews and 81 photos
Inside the Church of the Intercession you will find a lot of great icons already in the entrancehall and a total of 102 icons combined into the iconostasis in the main church. Not all of the great works of art and icons that you will see in this church were originally made for this church, as some of them were taken from other churches and added to this church, when it became a museum.
All of the island of Kizhi is granted to be a UNESCO World Heritage since 1991.
I am glad that photography was allowed in all of the buildings of the museum in Kishi, except with a flash and/or a tripod. I dont remember whether I had to pay for a photo-permission.
