The photo in the article depicts St.Nicholas Church, built in 1867, with side chapels of Paraskevi Piatnitsa and John the Apostle. During the war, the church was used as a granary.

The church was open until the end of the 90s, but then it slowly fell into decay. In 2018, it was demolished to make space for a new church.
