Photographer's Note

On a chapel on the peak (2524m.) of Mount Voras (Kaimaktsalan).
From 1912 till Second World War's end, the peak was the boundary bettween Greece and Yougoslavia. Then a small area, some dozen meters on its south, was given to Yougoslavia, because many Serbian soldjers lost their lives there during the war, fighting against Germans and Bulgarians. The Yougoslavs built a chapel (here you can see its dome) using what remained of the bombs and bullets. They also built an ossuary to keep the dead bones of the hundred dead soldjers, with the inscription "September 17th, 1916".
