  • Tiny wooden chapel. Nice commemoration of the poor Russian POWs who built this incredible road, specifically the ones who lost their lives in an avalanche, nice quick stop on your way over the pass. 
  • The Chapel itself is nothing spectacular, but affect the story that accompanies it and the setting. Definitely worth a visit

  • So nice that on Slovenian land so honored those killed in the first world of Russian prisoners of war, which is paving the mountain road killed by Avalanche. This road so far is called Russian. Around the clean, fresh flowers on the grave and tourists from all countries. Very touching. Thank you Slovenians!!

  • Res lepa kapelica. Vredna postanka.
  • 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.
