An Orthodox Chapel is erected on Wrangel Island

The construction of an Orthodox chapel on Wrangel Island has been completed. According to the press service of the Eastern Military District, it is erected on piles and rises one and a half meters above the earth's surface - this foundation design was chosen due to the peculiarities of the local soil, since Wrangel Island is located in the permafrost zone.

Construction of the chapel from materials brought to the island by ships took only 14 days. All works were conducted with strict observance of the Orthodox canons. The height of the building is about 6 meters.

The chapel is located 20 meters from the Polar Star modular military camp, which is also nearing completion. A similar chapel is being built at Cape Otto Schmidt.
