About The Trip to Kolvitsa
At the core of this book is a series of interviews with Kolvitsa old-timers, the oldest of whom were born in the late 1920s or early 1930s. Many of those interviewed are direct descendants of a small group of Karelian migrants who moved here and founded the village in early 90s of the 19th century. These interviews were mostly taken and processed in the Fall of 2014 and, together with historic background, provide a comprehensive view onto the origin and history of the village.
The book starts with a historic overview of lands around Kolvitsa, first mentioned in the middle of the 16th century as property of the Monastery of Holy Virgin in Kandalaksha. more >>
