Take a tour of Architecture of Kizhi Island in Russia — part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats.

Stepping onto Kizhi Island is like stepping into an illustration from a story book.

The island is home to some of the most captivating wooden architecture in the world.

There are over 80 wooden buildings, all unique, on this tiny island.

Ordinary buildings, like the Church of the Transfiguration, look like fantastical palaces and otherworldly constructions.

The domes, spires, carvings, edifices, and decorations found here are unlike anything else in the world.

Instead of nails, all the wooden buildings are held together using interconnecting wood pieces.

Kizhi Island generates so much interest that the entire island is now an outdoor museum.
