Kizhi Island in Lake Onega, Russia

We got tickets to go see Kizhi Island. Its in the middle of Lake Onega with an amazing church that was built on it in the late 1700’s

Our ride was a Hydrofoil

It took about 3 hours to get there
This is the reward!
The island is full of old wooden buildings that have been moved there turning the whole island into a museum
Then it was back to Petrozavodsk and looking around. They had this concrete wishing tree in the city.
