Veronica's Veil Chapel

Northern European Russia

Dating from the 17th century, the view from Veronica’s Veil Chapel offers wonderful panoramas right across Kizhi. Walk west across the island from Yamaka village towards Vasilyevo village to get here. It's on top of a picturesque hill. An alternative path from here leads back to the hydrofoil landing for transport back to Petrozavodsk.
