Church of Our Lady of Vladimir in Podporozhye

Podporozhye is an abandoned village located on the bank of the Onega River in the west of the Arkhangelsk region. Some time ago there was a whole church complex in the village. But only the Church of Our Lady of Vladimir, built in 1757, has survived.

This huge and majestic wooden building is one of the landmark monuments in the development of the architecture of the Russian North. Podporozhye on Google Maps. Photos by: Vadim Razumov.
