Church of St. Nicholas

The Church of St. Nicholas is an Orthodox church and a monument of Belarusian vernacular architecture. The first mention of the church dates back to 1682, but in 1738, on the occasion of a fire, a new, medium-sized, wooden building without a dome, with an iron cross on the roof, was erected. After another fire, the church had to be rebuilt in 1771. In 1839 the church, which was then a Uniate (Greek Catholic) church, was converted to Orthodoxy.
