The first reference to a tserkva existing here dates from 1533. The present Greek-Catholic Tserkva of St. Nicholas was built in 1790

how to get there

After the local population was relocated in 1951 the tserkva was used as a storehouse. Attempts to hold Roman Catholic liturgical rites here were initiated in 1968 because the nearby church had been demolished by workers of the local State Agricultural Farm in the 1950s. The authorities, however, had the tserkva sealed. Ultimately the building was acquired by Roman Catholic Church in 1969, and a parish was established in Polana in 1982.
