At the finish, the application will guide you through the process of displaying the church in real size. At the location, a new window will appear with detailed instructions. In the first window, the inscription you have arrived (si. prispeli ste) will appear, click on it and the new AR window will open with further instructions. Then point your device to the ground and wait that your device detects the ground. Scan the ground for about 10 seconds. After 10 seconds, click once on the screen of your device (more precisely, on the white grid) and the church will appear in front of you. Now you can see it in all its might, from the inside or outside.
