Trip Planner: Europe / Slovenia / Upper Carniola Region / Kranjska Gora / The Russian Chapel
Erected to honor those who died in the war, The Russian Chapel features two small towers in the classic Russian style. Built by Russian war prisoners of World War I, the chapel is surrounded by graves of soldiers. You may not be able to enter, but the exterior is worth the visit--consider bringing a camera or some snack for a picnic nearby.

The Russian Chapel reviews
This was a moving experience, a beautiful chapel commemorating a terrible loss. There are steps up to the chapel but it was manageable. Well signposted. Highly recommended. Note that there is a...

There’s not a tour or anything, but the story behind the chapel is compelling. We only stayed about 15 minutes to walk around a bit, but some people were listening to a audio explanation.

It's got a little parking lay-by, which, if you are lucky, will be free, and it is well worth taking a stop here. Lovely to see and lots of benches dotted around.

Special place that you must see. It has really high historical meaning and also it looks beautiful! In the middle of nature going towards Vršič. Be careful - park on the places where it’s allowed
After getting there and the road was closed due to snow, we decided to hike up the road to the chapel. The chapel itself is pretty disappointing, there was no seating after our long walk, and it’s not actually much to see itself. However, the walk there (as tiring as it was) made it worth it. The views were incredible, albeit this had nothing to do with the chapel (hence the 3* for the chapel itself). Would definitely recommend visiting the Pass but don’t bother with the chapel itself
Beautiful location devoted to the memory of russian prisoners of war that were buried under an avalanche whilst constructing the road leading to mountain pass Vršič.
Mysterious and historical feelings, right at the start of the adventurous Vrsic Pass! For parking; a little bit more up on the other side of the road.
Incredible story from World War I (see the pictures).
