DUBNE - Greek Catholic church of St. Archangel Michael
The church was renovated in 1929. After the Lemkos were expelled from the area as part of the WISŁA military action (1947), the church was converted into a Roman Catholic church. The church was inscribed on the list of monuments in 1964, then it was also included in the Malopolska Wooden Architecture Trail. In the attic of the church there lives a rare in Europe bat species – a lesser horseshoe bat. To protect it the Pro Natura Society obtained funds from the European Union and the National Fund for Environmental Protection to co-finance the renovation of the church’s roofing, which was carried out in winter 2011, season that the horseshoes spend in caves.
