It's hard to get to Kryukovo. Driving off road from the nearby village in the winter of 2016 we were guessing if we were going to get stuck or not. When we got there eventually we were very surprised to find no mill at all. One of the locals said that it had burned down two or three years before. Well, that's it. It was a Volga smock, by the way. The picture is here.
