    The chapel commemorates the Russian prisoners of war who were killed during the construction of the pass road (1915/1916) by a mudslide.

    A stop shortly after the 6th curve in the middle of a forest clearing is the wooden Russian Chapel - a memorial for the Russian prisoners from the First World War. Road construction began here by the Austrians in 1914 - around 10,000 Russian prisoners lost their lives.
