Solidarity in focus as Russian Chapel ceremony is held

Kranjska Gora, 25 July - The traditional Russian Chapel commemoration will take place on Saturday below the Vršič Pass to pay tribute to Slovenian-Russian friendship and to solidarity and connectedness between nations during the Covid-19 pandemic. It is because of the pandemic that the accompanying programme will be shortened.
