The wooden church of Saint Basil the Great is one of the oldest Hutsul-type shrines in the Boica family. The locals call it the church of Paraskeva of the Balkans. The edifice was built in the 16th century. At its current location (the old cemetery on the outskirts of the village) it was moved in 1733.
In 1970 it was restored – the authentic central eaves were returned to the place. The shingle roof of the church has been preserved, which gives it an extra picturesque aura. The church is lit by small rectangular window openings. The murals are missing. Inside there is an iconostasis from the 18th century. Old tombstones are scattered around the churchyard.
