Church of St. Elias Ukrainian Orthodox

When Blair and I traveled to Ukraine to visit Chernobyl, we stayed in a little village called Slavutych.  From here, we traveled by train each day back and forth to the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone to explore the nuclear power plants, Pripyat, and the surrounding area.  On our last morning, we talked to this church in Slavutych to photograph this wonderful facility.  I don’t know anything about their traditions, but I found it interesting that the church had no pews or chairs inside.  During the service, everyone stands. 

As you can see, it was a foggy morning with a gray sky.
