Chapel of New Martyrs and Russian Confessors (Yalta)

Original wooden Chapel of New Martyrs and Russian Confessors was erected on Yalta Embankment in 1881 in memory of tsar Alexander II upon his assassination in spring of the same year. This small Russian Orthodox Church was dedicated to Saint Alexander Nevsky, patron of deceased monarch. Unfortunately the chapel was destroyed in 1932 by Soviet government. New Chapel of the New Martyrs and Russian Confessors was constructed and finished on July 17, 2006. It is dedicated to saints that were killed by Atheistic Soviet government. Chapel of New Martyrs and Russian Confessors was consecrated by a Metropolit of Simferopol and Crimea Lazar.
