    The Parish village is a part of the Angara-Ilim area of the Museum.
    Such parish villages were administrative centers because they had churches. The sequence of the settlement construction was the following: first of all – protected of the cold houses (zimovie), then – the fort was built, gradually, as the development and, depending on the geographical conditions, the center of government was constructed and after all they built the church.

    Church of Our Lady of Kazan

    Church of Our Lady of Kazan
    2 more images

    The Church of Our Lady of Kazan is included in the structure of the Fort Ilim. The official date of its construction is 1679, although some scientists present evidence of earlier date of its construction. The church was built next to the carriageway of the Spasskaya Tower and played the role of not only a place of worship, but also a talisman for inhabitants of the fort, as well as its chapel on the overhang was its symbol. The church was rebuilt many times, but it was restored in the original version.
    The architecture of the Church is similar to the architecture of Northern Russian churches. This is not surprising since most of the pioneers who mastered the Siberian land were from the north of Russia. The internal volume of the church is divided into the altar, the church itself and the refectory.
    The Icon of Holy Face can be seen in the altar area.

    Spasskaya Tower

    The fort is now under construction. The western wall with a central roadway Spasskaya Tower, and side battle towers are already fully recreated. The restoration of the Tower was completed in 1984. During the reconstruction only a few of old wood was replaced by new.
    I have been told that the Spasskaya Tower (built in 1667) is one of the world's six surviving in their original view Wooden Towers. Reliable information on its construction came to us from its creator Nikita Lazarev. The Russian two-headed eagle is on its top.
    The other towers - Vvedenskaya and Nicholaevskaya, and all four corners of the fort have to be restored soon.

    Ilimsky Ostrog in Tal'tsy

    Ilimsky Ostrog (Fort Ilim)
    1 more image

    Ilimsky Ostrog (or Fort Ilim) is the most interesting part of the open-air Museum.
    After the construction of the Ust-Ilimsk Dam on the Angara at Ust-Ilimsk (below the fall of the Ilim into the Angara), the site of the village was flooded by the Ust-Ilimsk Reservoir in the mid-1970s.
    Before the site was flooded, archaeological excavations were carried out in the village during 1967–75. The Spasskaya Tower and the Church of Our Lady of Kazan from the old ostrog (wooden fort) were taken apart and moved to the Taltsy Museum.
    In the early 2000s, an exact copy of another tower of the former Ilimsk ostrog and the southern wall of the fortress were built at the Taltsy site next to the buildings moved from Ilimsk, thus recreating a large portion of the historic fortified town within easy reach from Irkutsk.

    It's fun to wander around this little wooden village, especially when there's so much snow about. Great fun was had. It also gives an idea as to what life may have been like back in those days.
