The Russian Chapel reviews
The Russian chapel is on the way (road) to top of pass Vršič. Recommended to visit it. Russian prisoners from 1. world built it from wood. The place is beautiful and silent. Tragic history. more »
Nice stop when going through Vrsic pass. Sad history of road construction, chapel built by Russian prisoners, who built the chapel. more »
Its size enhances its impressiveness, although you cannot normally see anything inside. Very nice!
Not much to this place really, maybe I missed some historical or cultural difference though. Good spot for a rest if you are hiking to the top.
