Church of St. Sophia

In September 2018, CyArk documented St. Sophia Church on the shores of Lake Ohrid in the Republic of North Macedonia. Several months prior, CyArk was contacted by an architect from the city of Ohrid who requested assistance documenting some of the monuments in the historic old town, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. CyArk began discussions with the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of North Macedonia and decided to complete work on St. Sophia Church. CyArk documented the exterior and exterior of the structure with additional high resolution capture focusing on the frescoes located within the church. In addition to the documentation work, CyArk staff also provided a workshop to the Ministry of Culture of Macedonia as well as local architects from Ohrid.
