Unique Monument of Wooden Architecture Regains its Original Look

Restoration of St. Nicholas Church in Kovda Settlement of the Murmansk Region has been completed after several years of work.
      The church, a culture heritage site of federal significance, has been brought back to its original shape.
      It is the one and the only monument of wooden architecture of the late 17th early 18th cc that has come down to us in entire Karelian Pomorye. It is a cellular type church. The building is made of the altar, the church itself, the refectory, and an antechurch, with separate span roofs. Nearby there is a tent-shaped belfry constructed in 1705.
      According to the adviser of culture and art committee Olga Anisimova, the restorers have returned initial shape not only to the main structure of the church, but also to its fencing, and besides have developed the project of protection zones for this cultural heritage site. Restoration works were financed from the federal and local budgets.
