3. Bi-metallic Quiz Game #957.....…by Jack Hepler, USA
Kargopol is a historical town adjoining the Kenozersky National Park. It is best known in Russia for Kargopol toys which are small, simple clay figures painted in traditional style.
During its golden age in the 17th century, Kargopol became home to a highly localized brand of medieval Russian architecture. Quite a few wooden and white stone churches survive in the town and its vicinity. The earliest of these buildings is the black-domed Cathedral of the Nativity of Christ, built of dolomite by Novgorodians and consecrated in 1562.  A hallmark of Kargopol churches is delicate stone carving.
The Kargopol stone churches are classified as historical and architectural heritage and include:

  Coat of arms
Annunciation and St. Nicholas Churches
