    The Greek-Catholic local church of St Nicholas was built in 1824 (according to the inscription in a corner of the door to the babinets). Since 1949 it has been used as a Roman-Catholic local church and a Greek-Catholic chapel at the same time. The free-standing bell tower was built together with the church. The church was renovated and altered in 1896. The roof construction was then altered and the interior was provided with wall paintings (painter Josip Bukowczyk). In 2000 the church was completely renovated.
