The plan of the cave

An underground church

The ceiling is smuted

The cave is well preserved.Someone says, that it’s  construction  occurred in the late 19th – early 20th century. One of the initiators of the construction was Terence Belchenko . Local citizens helped him . Terence was a very strong man with a difficult temperament : in 1902 he and his friend had robbed the village’s church. He was arrested and held in prison for three years . After liberation, Terence views on faith have changed dramatically : under the influence of advocacy of political prisoners he has become an atheist. For this reason, the construction of the cave was stopped. It became such an unfinished underground church .

The underground church is very beautiful and mysterious.
