Russian Wooden Churches after the First Snowfall
These two wooden 18th century churches are the heart of the Suzdal Museum of Wooden Architecture and Peasants' Life, catching the eye of any visitor with their simple yet elegant beauty. The picture was taken after first snowfall at the beginning of October during walking tour of the museum with my dear clients from USA.
On the left side of the picture you can see Transfiguration Church that was built in 1756 in Kozlyatyevo village. Then in 1967-1968 it was moved to its new location – Suzdal’s Museum of Wooden Architecture and Peasant Life. Recently the roof of the church had to be restored, since it was destroyed by the fire after it was struck by the lighting in July 21, 2011.
The building on the right side of the picture is Church of the Resurrection of Christ. It was built a bit later than its companion – in 1776. It was moved to Suzdal in 1970s.
