Photographer's Note

This Rozhdestvo-Bogoroditskaya (i.e. named after Nativity of the Theotokos) church is situated in stanitsa of Vyselki, Lunyov’s Street, 122. The church is newly renovated. When the dyed gates get dried and installed, the renovation will be fully completed.

The settlement appeared as a khutor (hamlet) in 1893. In 1903 it became a stanitsa (big village). Since 1934 it is the center of an administrative region of Krasnodar kray. Now Vyselki has railway and bus stations, many businesses, good architecture (including two churches and modern sport centre) and nice street design. Only its name (Vyselky means a hamlet in Russian) reminds that 100 years ago it was a small khutor. With its population of about 20000, Vyselky looks like a well-organized middle-sized town. Maybe the fact that the governor of Krasnodar Kray, Alexander Tkachyov, had been born there was helpful for the village’s fast development in recent years. Frankly speaking, the fast infrastructural development is seen in any region of Russia, but more clearly in Krasnodar Kray, which will host the 2014 Winter Olympics.
