Chushevitsy is a village in the Verkhovazhsky district of Russia’s Vologda region and the administrative center of the same-named rural community. The settlement has a population of around 700 people. It is situated on the Vaga River’s banks.
In the center of the village there is a monument to fellow countrymen who died during the Great Patriotic War.
During my visit, there was a rally dedicated to the day of memory and sorrow, called “Candle of Memory”.
Workers at the local library observed a minute of silence before lighting candles and setting flowers at the memorial.
The church in Chushevitsy is located in the scaffolding, so it was not possible to take a normal picture.
Okay, to keep this post from being too short, I’ll show you the church in Syamzha from a different perspective. By the way, I had to return here after Chushevitsy for this purpose.
However, because it is located on a steep hill and is surrounded on all sides by woods, this church is notoriously difficult to photograph.
A cow parsnip grows from below, which immediately spoils the postcard view of this architectural object.
