Kizhi (Russia). 'Old buildings made from logs may not usually be synonymous with ‘heartstopping excitement’, but Kizhi’s collection of wooden masterpieces is enough to spike the blood pressure.

Legend has it that the unnamed builder destroyed his axe upon its completion.' http://www.lonelyplanet.com/russia/northern-european-russia/kizhi
