The first Orthodox church in this place was built after 1616, when a Uniate parish was established in the village. The new temple was founded in 1653, and the modern church – in the eighteenth century.
In 1831 it was rebuilt and enlarged. It is an oriented, wooden temple with a log construction. The tower has a pillar structure. A little unusual, this church consists of four connected parts: a new presbytery closed on three sides, an older one connected with the nave by one roof, and a tower with a women’s gallery (a place for women) located in the basement.
The walls of the church are covered with vertical boards, roofs lined with shingles, and covered with sheet metal. The roof over the nave and the former presbytery is gable, tent-like. The presbytery has a multi-slope roof. It is covered with spherical cupolas with false lanterns just like the tower. The interior is covered with flat ceilings. In the women’s gallery there is a music choir supported by two large poles decorated with floral ornaments.
After the “Wisła” campaign, the church was taken over by the Latin Church. The ceiling and the inside of the church walls are covered with polychrome in a blue tone with a vine theme.
In addition to the main altar from the 17th century, the church has two side altars from the 18th century. They contain icons of the Mother of God and the Transfiguration.
