Was built in 1903-1905. It is a tripartite oriented church (its presbytery faces east). Its roofs, tower walls and a section of the presbytery are covered with sheet metal. The tower features log structure in the lower part and frame construction in the upper part. The interior is covered with a false barrel vault with polychrome decoration imitating the starry sky. The polychrome decoration of the walls comes from 1938. Brought here from Drohobycz in 1912, the iconostasis (early 20th century) is valuable because of its unusual stepwise layout of the icons. Worth seeing in the area! Not far from Konieczna, there is the peak of Rotunda, where we will find a charming cemetery from the times of World War I.
