   The former Greek-Catholic church of St Dimitri was built in 1840. In the late19th and early 20th centuries the interior
 walls of the new church were covered with paintings. After the Second World War it was taken over by the State Treasury and consequently left without proper care, which quickly led to its dilapidation. The church shows a late 19th-century phase in the development of sacred wooden architecture. The traditional layout was modified to make the interior more uniform an increase the role of the outermost rooms in the church's structure.

Things surviving inside include the five-tiered iconostasis form the 17th / 18th centuries. The church has a traditional layout with later modification to the floor plan and silhouette.

Nowe Brusno
   The former Greek-Catholic church of St. Martyr Paraskevia was built in the early 18th century. The date of the construction isn't definitely
 known- the earliest suggestion refer to 1676, the latest one- to 1790. Only the date of renovation in 1903-1906 is stated in the documents. A lump of trigeminal temple, covered with three domes, women's gallery added in 1903. Originally, above the (babinets) there was a chapel with an arcade gallery outside. The building was surrounded by wide eaves and arcades (soboty). In 1873 a sacristy was added to the sanctuary and in 1903 the church silhouette was changed (the new babinets was built, the dome profile was changed and the eaves were removed). After 1947 the church was taken over by the State. In 1994 restoration work started. Currently it doesn't function.

Stare Oleszyce
   The former Greek-Catholic church of the Protection of Our Lady (since 1979 the Roman-Catholic church of the Sacred Heard) was built in 1787. It
 was altered between 1878 and 1877 and in the 1920s. After 1947 it was taken over by the State. In 1971 it resumed its religious functions. Between 1978 and 1981 it was renovated and altered. A wooden bell tower, presumably built in the late 18th century, stands next to the church. In spite of substantial alterations, the church has preserved elements of traditional wooden Eastern- rite church architecture: the tripartite plan and the dominant nave covered with a block work dome.
