  • The view from outside creates a fairy tale palace atmosphere, surrounded by snow-capped mountains. Very beautiful and gives an almost magical setting.  more »
  • Fantastic setting for this cave church. Tiny inside but again it is about the significance and the photos you can take from the outside that make it a great place.  more »
