Church in Krempna

The 18th-century Church of Sts. Cosmas and Damian in Krempna is now a Roman Catholic church. It is a solid structure built in a log-frame design, oriented and tripartite. Above the vestibule (women's gallery) stands a massive tower in a pillar construction, crowned with a signature and domes, similar to the turrets above the other two parts. The interior features a traditionally richly gilded iconostasis. The main altar contains an image of St. Nicholas. It is an important part of the Wooden Architecture Trail in the Lemko Region. It is worth noting that some of the materials used in the construction may date back to the 15th century.
