The wood, despite the frost, was carried in horse-drawn carts from afar. The builders died long ago, but the building has survived to this day. Its scale makes a lasting impression. In memory of those who died, a cross was built here in 2015, blessed by the Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church Cyril. Those who wish can climb, symbolically have a hand and pay tribute to the dead. Then you will find yourself among two mountains, which have Russian names Paul and Helen, and find out why they were named that way. Walk to the gorge.
