Kizhi Pogost

It's been far too long since I've noted Jackie Britton's travels. Her most recent destination is Russia, where she is visiting sites such as Kizhi Pogost. This is a walled compound on an island in northwest Russia that is the site of two wooden churches built in the 18th century. The Church of the Intercession, in LEGO form below, is the smaller structure and is heated for use in winter. The larger Church of the Transfiguration is not heated, and so is only used in warmer months. This link has several great pictures of these really amazing structures.
