Relive the full splendor of the Byzantine Renaissance with new app of Istanbul's Chora Church
izApps developed an official application for the Chora Museum that enables users to relive the Byzantine Renaissance and understand artistic tradition of the period with the stories behind them.
ISTANBUL.- The Chora Church is known today as Kariye Museum, hosting remarkable collection of Byzantine mosaics and frescoes and is the finest remaining example of the Palaeologian Renaissance. This 14th century building, located in Istanbul, is covered with mosaics and frescoes which are surviving examples of Byzantine church decoration.

izApps developed an official application for the Chora Museum that enables users to relive the Byzantine Renaissance and understand artistic tradition of the period with the stories behind them.

The application constitutes a new approach to how a museum should be presented with its full splendor. It is based on game-technology and creates a photorealistic environment which conveys all the glory of artistic expression inside the Chora Museum.

Its notable features are:

• The Official Chora Museum Application by Republic of Turkey Ministry of Culture and Tourism

• Finalist in 2012 Unity Awards in the category of Best Non-Game Application

• Optimized for Retina Display with maximum quality graphics

• The first and only photorealistic realtime 3D museum application

• Contains reconstruction of “The Last Judgement” fresco

• Explore the museum freely in 3D and touch info points to get information

• Listen to the narrative cycles that include events from the lives of Christ and the Virgin in the mosaics

You can discover this extraordinary monument through this innovative application by downloading it from Apple Store
