Artwork in memory of and as a reminder

The wooden chapel, dedicated to St. Vladimir, was built in 1917 by Russian prisoners of war in memory of the deceased during the construction of the Vršič Pass road.

The construction of the chapel is wooden. Originally it was covered with bark, later with small boards. The humble interior shows an interesting altar with iconostasis, forged chandeliers and candlesticks.

In the vicinity of the Russian Chapel, you can visit the graves and a stone tomb dating back to 1936–37.
