St Anthony's Church

  Gazi Husrev bb     more than a year ago
There is something inherently sad about ruins, but the artistic tendencies of the modern age also imbue them with a true sense of poetry and tenderness. This is true of what is left of the Church of St. Anthony, built in 1891 to celebrate the end of Ottoman rule (the original church had been converted into a mosque). The new church took decades to complete, and it was finished just in time for the Allies to bomb it to smithereens in 1943. What remains is a sight that is equal parts bitter and beautiful.
