Kizhi Island is one of over 1650 islands in Lake Onega, the second largest lake in Europe. Kizhi includes 83 wooden structures such as churches and homes, most of which date back to the 18th or 19th century. These buildings were either built on Kizhi or have been collected from around northern Russia and preserved on Kizhi.
