The frescoes in the St. Sophia church are characterized by the postures of the figures and the archaic forms, united in an artistic and iconographic whole, unique to church painting of the time. Since its builders blessed it with wonderful acoustics, St Sophia and its front garden are the main stage of the annual Ohrid Summer Festival and many other festivals.
