Photographer's Note

The Saint Maria Church, built in 1905 dedicated to the Ascension of St. Mary above an 18th century cave church and on the location of a destroyed 14th century fortress. The church was shot down under the Soviets in 1944, but services resumed in 1996.

In every decent angle I could come up with, this blue truck was in the shot, so I made it a feature rather than try to hide it. It gives a suggestion that this is a "working" church. It appears there is active (though perhaps very slow) construction going on as there was a fresh pile of sand and some clean concrete work just outside the frame of this shot.
