    Precioisa chapel built by Russian soldiers during the first world war prisoners. Stop forced. A place with "magic".

    This small Russian church made of wood was built by Russian prisoners who built by Russian prisoners who built mountain road. Died overwhelmed by an avalanche. Kinda hard to find: the right side is a small car park and left the staircase leading to the Church.

    Pretty little chapel, made out of wood by Russian prisoners of war. If you're driving the Vrisic-pass it's a nice stop, but don't go out of your way (except when it holds significance for you) to see ...  more »

  • Really nice place in the middle of the woods. Not worth a trip of its own, but if you are doing some hiking in the area, or passing through the pass from Kranjska Gora to Bovec, it's definitely worth stopping by. The place is small and should take no more than 15-30 minutes to explore it.
  • A holy place where the Russian soldiers are buried. Russian spirit in the chapel and the Grave of the Unknown soldier
  • Wonderful place.
  • A small, beautiful and poignant monument to the many of hundreds of Russian POWs who died building the Russian Road over the Vrisic Pass. Certainly worth stopping and visiting.
