Plevna Chapel

The chapel has some history behind which made me amazed a little. I saw this chapel many times before but I didn’t read about it anything. I’m not good in rewriting in English so I will just copy a piece of article from English Wikipedia.

Plevna Chapel is a public subscription monument to the Russian Grenadiers who died during the Siege of Plevna (a major battle of the Russo-Turkish War of 1877–1878).

By the way, if you take a look at the whole article (very small indeed) you can see a reproduction of a 19th-century postcard. It’s funny to think that Moscow looked like this in former times.

As for why I photographed it at all. It was dusk and I just stood and looked at the candles lit inside the chapel. In those moments I’d like to believe in God, but not for long.

    1. had to process image rather much to get final result. I just overexposed the shot to get details inside. So it’s a pleasure to hear that the lighting is good 🙂 Thank you, Art!
