Discover the little Russian Village, several houses on the Champ-de-Mars.

A - Isbah group... The great Isbah, or peasant's house, consists of three buildings

The first is a building in spruce, which forms a house complete. The walls are made of tree bark
and regularized round without an ax. The underside of each piece of wood is hollowed out so as
to receive the top of the lower part, between the two is in tow.
This is obviously a pretty amazing style building for visitors of expo.

Isbah, composed by three constructions.  
These Russian buildings are certainly at the origin of the mode of wooden chalet in France until
the early twentieth century.

The ground floor is designed for barns and stables.
Accessible by a staircase covered, the first floor is divided into two parts which include housing
of the peasant and his children. A terracotta stove is at a corner of the room, it serves as a bread
