The Greek Orthodox Church of the Protection of Mother of God was built at the end of the 18th century. This is the tripartite building with the trigonally closed chancel and the columnar and frame steeple with the apparent bell chamber. The interior is decorated with architectural and ornamental polychrome from 1924, the iconostas from the 18th century and the main altar with the icon of the Crucifixion. On the adjacent cemetery, the historic stone tombstones and the grave of Maxim Sandovich, the Orthodox clergyman, killed by the Austrians at the beginning of World War I are maintained.
