Photographer's Note

Tserkov complex in Michniowiec - Greek Catholic tserkov of Nativity of the Mother of God, today Roman Catholic church of the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist

Today used as a Roman Catholic church. It was built in 1863-1868. Its distinguishing feature is the interesting and unique silhouette, quite unusual in Bieszczady.
In 1969, along with the church, a nearby cemetery with several preserved tombstones and a belfry were entered into the register of monuments. The belfry was built in 1904 by Jakub Hirb. The building of a rare structure has three floors and has a square plan. The lower storey is log, and the upper one is columnar, covered with shingle. The belfry also served as a morgue for suicides. Belfry renovated in 1997.
