DUBNE

St. Michael the Archangel

1863

Dubne, like Lelyukhiw, is located right on the border with Czechoslovakia. To photograph this tserkva, we inadvertently crossed from Slovakia into Poland by jumping a 3 foot wide stream. Near the church we met an old lady who at first was startled to hear us speak in Ukrainian. Later she advised us to go back right away for "They" (that is the border guards) might come to the village at any time. The tserkva served some 300 parishioners but now appears to be closed and unused. DUBNE
