Photo feature on subterranean Chapel of St. Barbara, located deep inside a Romanian salt mine

A photo feature is posted today on the Orthodoxia News Agency showing the subterranean Chapel of St. Barbara, which is located some 240 meters beneath the earth’s surface in a disused salt mine in Romania.

Construction was completed in 1992, and comprised the first church built in a salt mine in Europe. Candlesticks and the iconostases – in other words, the wall of icons – are also built from salt.
