Photographer's Note

An impressive engraved iconostasis within the Church of St. Demetrius in Bitola. The lighting was uneven so I have added brightness in some parts. Under Ottoman law the exterior of the church had to be plain when it was built in 1830, but the interior could be as lavish as they wanted. Also under Ottoman law the height of the church could not exceed any surrounding mosques. North Macedonia gained independence from Turkey in 1912.
