Private swap from Poncha

Kizhy is an island on Lake Onega in the Republic of Karelia with an ensemble of wooden churches, chapels and houses. The jewel of its architecture is the 22-domed Transfiguration Church (was founded in 1714), with a large iconostasis — a wooden screen covered with religious portraits, featuring much gold leaf. Kizhy is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Russia and an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
