Symbol of memory and friendship
The cultural monument of the Russian Chapel was erected in 1916 in memory of the Russian soldiers who died due to an avalanche during the construction of the road through the Vršič mountain pass.
The annual memorial ceremony at the Russian Chapel is usually attended by the highest representatives of the Russian Federation and Slovenia, as well as the general public, who want to prove the friendship between nations in a symbolic way.
The memorial meeting in Kranjska Gora is accompanied by a cultural event, where you can see performances of top Russian artists in the Vitranc Hall.
