Photographer's Note

Ancient (actually oldest) of Russian cities and first capital of Russia - Staraya Ladoga (Old Ladoga), stands on the shore of Volhov river 125 kilometers to the East from St-Peterburg. Now it's only a small village, with a fortress and two monasteries with 7 old churches, oldest are of 1164.
On the other side of the river in XVI century was a small monastery, named after St. Basil of Cesaria (or Kesaria?). Now there's a church remains, built in 1686, surrounded by the small cemetery.
To come there I crossed the frozen Volhov, in summer locals use some boats, maybe.
Photo is scanned, so its quality is not very high (and my quality of photographer is very humble, too).
