Little windows with shutters in Kazan city

Carved windows frames in Kazan city (Nalichniki)

Kazan had had only a few surviving houses with window frames (as well as without ones), and most of them vanished in last couple of years, as the city was being made neat and tidy by Universiade 2013. Well, one cannot make an omelete without breaking eggs…

But back in 2009 I had luck to find some interesting wooden houses in the very center of the city!

This is one of them.

PS: The decoration is totally unusual for Kazan; most probably, it is the design of the house owner.
