Preservation of the Ruins of the Late 18th-Century Church of the Nativity in Krohkino

This project supports a suite of interventions to strengthen the banks and foundation of the former church.

Built in 1788, the Church of the Nativity is all that remains of the former village of Krokhino, which was flooded in 1964 to create the Sheksna Reservoir. Following the flooding and resettlement of the townspeople, the church became a lighthouse to guide boats through the flood zone. [Photo credit: Project organizer]
