Built Heritage

Many cultures have building types and architecture unique to them. For our region, this spans housing types such as the izba, yurt, dacha, Lemko cottage, and even the more modern khrushchevka. It can also include banyas, kremlins, fortified manor houses, caravanserai, and castles. These are physical representations of a people’s history and culture.

Note that religious buildings have been categorized under “sacred places” on this site, although many of them could also fall under this category.
