Thanks to the movie “Alien father”, published in 1982, we have the opportunity to look at the city Ivye the way he was during filming. Below are screenshots taken from the movie itself.
To identify Ivya, it was enough to see the footage taken on the main street of the city, here is an ordinary building of the late 19th - first half of the 20th century, and of course the Church of Saints Peter and Paul.
There are several scenes in the film, the events of which take place near the church, they show a gate with a fence, the building of the monastery and the walls of the temple itself.
A view also opens up on Komsomolskaya Street, where you can see the still unrestored water Mill.
Here is the bridge over the Ivenka River and the mill building, but closer.
