    Old wooden church in Suzdal, Russia - During the time of the Soviet Union, nearly all of Suzdal's economy was planned around its tourist potential. As a result, very few modern buildings were constructed in Suzdal (by law there are no structures more than 2 stories high except cathedrals). Also, a number of wooden structures from other parts of Russia were transported here, and the whole city was converted into an 'open-air museum'.

Há só uma janela fechada, e todo o mundo lá fora; E um sonho do que se poderia ver se a janela se abrisse, Que nunca é o que se vê quando se abre a janela. Fernando Pessoa (Ficções do Interlúdio)
