The Filial Greek Catholic Church of St. Michael the Archangel in Polany (currently the Filial Roman Catholic Church with the same dedication) dates from 1820. It is a Lemko church, built using log construction with shingled walls.
The architectonic-figurative polychrome dates from 1862: on the ceilings you can see biblical scenes, and on the choir parapet – scenes from the Old Testament. A painted canopy stretches above the iconostasis. The church fittings consist of the C19th iconostasis (two sovereign icons – Christ Teaching and St. Michael the Archangel). The chancel contains a late-baroque altar with an C18th painting of the Pieta.
