Kizhi Pogost, Kizhi Island, Russia - A Kiss From Kizhi Pogost - Travel and People Magazine

Kizhi Pogost

Dipkissing with the two wooden churches built 300+ years ago – without a single nail!

Kizhi Island on Russia’s Lake Onega is approx. 300 mi or 483 km NE of St. Petersburg. It is home to two exceptional churches built in the 1700s, made entirely of interlocking wood, with absolutely no metal — not even a single nail.

These two churches, which have also been designated as Unesco World Heritage Sites, show off the extraordinary carpentry skills of the Russians. The bigger of the two, the Church of the Transfiguration has 22 domes and is one of the tallest wooden buildings in Asia at 37 meters high.
