Kruhel Wielki
   An Orthodox church complex. The Greek Orthodox church under the invocation of the Ascension of Christ which was built before 1630. A wooden  belfry
was erected next to the church in the 18th century. This Orthodox church in Kruhel was rebuilt in 1884, but then abandoned after 1947. Completely restored in the years 1997 - 2000. This reconstruction did not distort the archaic structure of the temple in any significant way, which remains one of the most valuable monuments of wooden orthodox church architecture in the country to date, giving us a picture of what wooden Orthodox churches built before the 17th century looked like.

Medyka
   The parish church under the invocation of St Peter and St Paul which was erected in 1607. It was completely redeveloped in  1850 (its interior, which comprised a single nave, was extended to form a tri-nave structure, a so-called barrel vault was added, a sacristy made of brick was erected south of the presbytery, and on the other side, north thereof, an analogous room was built a vestibule). In 1880 the shape of this structure was substantially modified by "detaching" the tower from the main body of the church and setting it as a detached belfry. Renovated in the years including 1900 and 1955.

Leszno
   The Greek-Catholic church of St Basil the Great (since 1957 Roman-Catholic) was built in 1737 and altered in 1971 and  1989. In spite of the alterations, the church with its archaic layout is one of the country's most valuable monuments of Eastern-rite sacred architecture. Until recently it formed a complex with another unique architectural monument - a 16th-century bell tower (it collapsed in 2000). The bell tower will soon be rebuilt on a new site next to the wooden Greek-Catholic chapel of the Holy Trinity (now a Greek-Catholic parish church) some 200 meters north of the former parish church.

Kuźmina
    The Unit church under the invocation of St Dimitri which was erected in 1814. In 1938 the church was seized from the Ukrainians and handed over to function as a Roman Catholic church.

Roztoka
    The Unit church under the invocation of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary which was erected in 1936 in the place of an earlier wooden church dating from 1822; at present a Roman Catholic church. This temple belongs to the group of monumental structures, with extensive representation in the area of south-east Poland, whose from was vastly shaped in the event of the search for a style that was to lead up to the arrangement of a so-called universal "national style".

Wojtkowa
    The Unit church under the invocation of the Birth of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary which was erected in 1910 (a Roman Catholic church since 1973). Following the eviction of the Ukrainian population, the church remained derelict, but later served the purpose of the Fire Brigade storage house. The Unit church in Wojtkowa belongs to the group of monumental structures whose form was shaped in the event of the conscious search for the so-called universal "national style".

Liskowate
    The Unit parish church under the invocation of the Birth of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary which was erected in 1832; at present a Roman Catholic church. It was initially a Unit church with either an apex chapel or a belfry with a gallery above the "babiniec" (the church vestibule where women beggars used to sit and beg) and arcades on pillars at the front. The structure was significantly altered during the renovation of 1929. At first, following the Second World War, it was occupied by Greek emigrants, but then later, until the 1970s, it served the purpose of PGR (State Farm) warehouse, which resulted in its ruin.
