Church of Sophia


I did this shot the same day and time as the backyard posted on Saturday.

The construction of the church is dated 1495, it was a club in 1920-1940, then became the apartment house and only in 1960 the government gave it the status of architectural monument. In 1992 the buildings (main building and belfry) were returned to the church in awful state and only two years later the service started in the building.
I would post the belfry in full glory some time later, it looks great from the other side of the river.
