The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

Kizhi Island

postcardsLuckily I can read cyrillic otherwise this beautiful postcard from my Russian friend Alex might have remained a mystery to me! He tells me he went out and bought this card for me to ease his bad mood and that it worked! But he forgets to tell me about the stunning place on the card. So, here you can see Kizhi, an island on Lake Onega in the Karelia Republic in Russia. Apparently it was once a thriving rural community dating back to the 15th century, but it is now an open-air museum. Beautiful though! Thanks Alex!
