As most church ruins it is evocative and romantic especially during the night under a full moon. Worth admiring.

Very well preserved Orthodox Cathedral in the center of the city. My thought are that this structure with its gothic arches and beautiful design should have been restored and kept as a Church. MUST see.

The former Church of Sts Peter & Paul was transformed into a mosque after the capture of the city by the Turks in 1571. It is quite an interesting building architecturally, though it is closed to the public.

One of several old churches that have converted to a mosque. The exterior was very similar to church buildings in Europe but it was not possible to gain access to the inside.
