The setting in The Baba Yaga is of an old Russian forest. As the young girl goes to the Baba Yaga’s house she finds it is on chicken feet, not stilts. As the girl runs from the wretched house she creates a river, and a forest. The underlying setting is dark and silent, cold and lonely. The girl spends about half of the story at a loom in the Baba Yaga’s house.
