After lunch, take a boat trip through the waters of the southern part of Kenozero. Here, far from the city bustle, you will find an amazing world of a kenozersky village with carefully stored chapels, many of which are blocked by the famous kenozersky painted "heavens," with worship crosses, with grandmothers still remembering ancient songs and fairy tales. This world is imbued with legends and shrouded in mysteries: why each village has its own order of houses, what power the "sacred" trees own, why you can't make noise in the "holy" grove, does the village have its own heavenly patron, what is "grow" and why did they put worship crosses there? You will see the chapel of St. Vlasius of the XIX century. In Tyryshkino village we will visit the smallest chapel in Russia.
