The tiny church is located on the frozen landscape of King George’s Island, Antarctica.

Holy Trinity church was first built in Russia from Siberian cedar planks treated to withstand the frosts and harsh wind and then disassembled and shipped log-by-log, “like Lego blocks,” to Antarctica, said Alejo Contreras, a Chilean Antarctic explorer who witnessed the construction and consecration in 2004, as Telegraph mentions.

To protect it from strong winds, it is bound to the nearby rocky mountain with chains.
