Transfiguration Church with Birch Tree on the First Day of Autumn
Composition with the old Church of the Transfiguration and a birch tree on the grounds of the Museum of Wooden Architecture at the beginning of calendar Autumn. The three-level wooden church of Transfiguration was built in the village of Kozlyatyevo in the Kolchugino District in 1756. It was moved to the museum in Suzdal in 1967-1968. On July 21, 2011, the top of the wooden church dating back to the 18th century caught fire after being struck by lightning. Restoration works of the church were held almost half a year by 36 craftsmen from Vladimir and it was finished in February 2012. The restoration cost quite big sum to the city of about 6 million roubles ($200.000).
