Photographer's Note

This is the belltower of the Church of Saint Demetrius. It was built in 1830 AD. During the Ottoman rule, all churches had to both smaller than any nearby mosques and it was forbidden to lavishly decorate the exteriors. Consequently, this church has one of the most stunning interiors in Macedonia FYR, plus they would often dig over 1 metre underground to create more space in the reduced height churches.
