The Russian Chapel reviews
After all those great hairpin bends (from the north) it was great just to stop off at this interesting place for a short break. more »
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 »
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.
