Local activist Ivan Samoilov loved his village and dedicated 40 years of his life to create the open-air museum of wooden architecture in Nizhnyaya Sinyachikha (180km east of Yekaterinburg)
Samoilov restored the Savior Church, a good example of Siberian baroque style. The church is now an exhibition space of interior and exterior design. Rich villagers would hire a designer to paint the walls of their wooden izbas (houses). Bright and happy colors were very popular with the Ural dwellers.
Old neglected houses and chapels of XVII - IX centuries were brought to Nizhnyaya Sinyachikha from all over the Urals.
