Kondopoga

 

a city (since 1938), the administrative center of Kondopoga Raion, Karelian ASSR. Located on the shore of the Kondopoga Bay of Lake Onega, near the mouth of the Suna River. It has a railroad station on the Leningrad-Murmansk line, 54 km north of Petrozavodsk. Population, 28,000 (1970). A hydroelectric power plant is located on the Suna River, and the city has a paper and pulp mill. Building materials are produced in the town. There is a medical school.

Kondopoga has one of the outstanding monuments of Russian wooden architecture, the Uspenskii Church (1774, restored in 1927 and again in the 1950’s). The central tower of the church (height, 42 m), which has a hipped roof (shater), together with the rectangular framework of the refectory and altar annex with its horseshoe-shaped roof, creates for the cathedral an airy, picturesque silhouette that seems to reach skyward.
