Nizhnyaya Sinyachikha, museum of wooden architecture

Local activist Ivan Samoilov loved his village and dedicated 40 years of his life to create the open-air museum of wooden architecture in Nizhnyaya Sinyachikha (180km east of Yekaterinburg)

Samoilov restored the Savior Church, a good example of Siberian baroque style. The church is now an exhibition space of interior and exterior design. Rich villagers would hire a designer to paint the walls of their wooden izbas (houses). Bright and happy colors were very popular with the Ural dwellers.

Old neglected houses and chapels of XVII - IX centuries were brought to Nizhnyaya Sinyachikha from all over the Urals. You will see the interior design of the houses and hear stories about traditions and customs of the Ural farmers.
