  • 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.
  • The chapel was closed but was very beautiful from the outside and all around it was amazing
  • Chapel looks nice. Worth to stop on to way to or from Bovec to see it. Piece of sad history too.
  • Beautiful little chapel. We're not super familiar with Russian Orthodox churches so it was nice to look at the modest iconostasis and the surrounding Russian saints. We got to ring the bell too!
