HistoryEdit

Due to its archaic architecture, the village is an ethnocultural reserve, which includes 42 homesteads and 25 individually protected buildings. The village is situated along one street. Homesteads have irregular plans, some of which are located on both sides of the street. Houses are mostly double-ended; barns often have side barns; granaries have hip or half-hip roofs.[2]
