About 90% under restoration including the main attraction the largest structure. A church. A big disappointment but the few places five or six are really great. Don't don't know if I would waste the time or money as an independent traveler to do it again....More

Some of the oldest buildings in Russia are found here. So interesting to see recreations of both rich and poor styles of houses too.
