The first historical bulding you see in the town Maloyaroslavets when you drive by Walsaw road is an old chapel, where the part of the Museum of Patriotic War of 1812 is now housed. A large painting of the Maloyroslavets battle is exhibited there.

The chapel was built by retired Major Maksimov, a local landlord. He had stated, "In commemoration of the battle of Maloyraslavets, where I was wounded and where many of my friends heroically perished, I want to build a chapel near the graves of those dead, at my own expense". The chapel was built in 1860.

For current visiting hours, please visit the website of the museum.
