Church of The Transfiguration - Kizhi, Russia

Church of the Transfiguration was founded on the kizhi island,a haven located near Lake Onega. A recognizable feature of the church is that the contraption was construvted exclusively out of wood, and when it was created no metal nails were used.

It is estimated that the temple was finished at the very last years of the 16th century, but after a devastating fire it was virtually destroyed. The famous church that we see at the moment, was resurrected in the year 1714. The building has its original dome, made in the form of bulbs. These peculiar elements give the Temple a fabulous look.
