Greek Catholic Church

 - Orthodox or Greek Catholic Church of St. Archangel Michael (1740),  Reconstructed 1970.   Sacral books from 1626-1654.  Liturgical books from 17th century printed in Cyrillic at Lviv.

- Wooden bell house - 1956.

It appears from Greek Catholic information that this was originally a Greek Catholic Church, but now it is controlled by the Orthodox Church.  Under Greek Catholic, the church was affiliated (managed) by the church in Ulicske Krive.
