St George’s Orthodox Chapel:

Hidden Treasure in Skoltebyen, Norway

by

Dian H., Grimstad, Norway

This chapel was built approximately around 1565 which is central for Russian Orthodox religious activities. This wooden building is neither tall nor spacious. It is approximately 16 m2. However, the chapel, with the overall area so called Skoltebyen is a protected area. Near the gate, there are information leaflets inside a metal box. However we didn’t get English version and only Finish and Russian versions left. The building is a bit hidden from the main road E6; you need to walk, following the walking path. When we came this summer, the grass was quite tall. My husband got «mosquito attacks». If you are sensitive to mosquito, use mosquito repellant before walking in this area.
