how to get there

The landmark is an example of traditional archaic sacral architecture of old Ruthenia. The tripartite log building, oriented eastward, comprises a large sacristy adjoining the chancel. Over the nave there is an eight-panel dome on a tall drum. The other chambers are covered with double-pitched roofs. In the chancel we can see a coved flat ceiling, and in the narthex a false trapezoid ceiling. On the dome we can see a false roof lantern with onion-shaped cupola. The outer walls are clad with vertical wood planks with moulding.
