Former wooden Greek-Catholic Tserkva of the St. Paraskeva in Leszczowate

From a distance, the building is easy to identify. The large onion-shaped dome on a high drum over the crossing of the naves and the smaller domes over the ends of the roof clearly show the Orthodox origins of the present-day Roman Catholic church. Specialists from the Stanisławów area (now Ivano-Frankivsk in Ukraine) built the church and renovated the belfry standing next to it in 1922. Despite the religious adaptation, the interior has retained its Orthodox character with elements of an iconostasis and the main altar with a ciborium, a dome-shaped canopy, as well as rich polychrome paintings in the spirit of Ukrainian historicism.
