In Lyadiny

Lyadinsky Pogost

While in Kargopol you may see pictures of the Lyadinsky Pogost consisting of two beautiful wooden churches - the mid-18th century Intercession Church and the late-18th century Epiphany Church.  This sight was probably the most impressive of the wooden churches located around Kargopol, however sadly on Easter Day in 2013 the Intercession Church was struck by lightning and it subsequently burned down.  So take this into account before you set of on a journey here.  In any case the village of Lyadiny is located about 40km west of Kargopol, so a taxi would be the best option for visiting.

Location 40km west of Kargopol
