Church
“The Church of St. Sophia is located in the old part of Ohrid. The church is one of the most important monuments of Macedonia, housing architecture and art from the Middle Ages. The church was built during the First Bulgarian Empire, after the official conversion to Christianity. It was subsequently converted into a mosque during the rule of the Ottoman Empire. The interior of the church has been preserved with frescoes from the 11th, 12th and 13th century, which represent some of the most significant achievements in Byzantine painting of the time. The main part of the church was built in the 11th century, while external additions were built by Archbishop Gregory II in the 14th century.”
