Photograph of the Russian Church at Kadikoi. The church has a small dome and a portico with four columns. There are several buildings to the left of it and a small walled garden to the right. In the foreground there is a railway track with a wooden hut and two tents alongside it. On the hillside behind the church there are several small groups of huts and there are large hills in the distance. The Battle of Balaklava was fought in the countryside around the small village of Kadikoi, just north of Balaklava.
