POVOROZNYK

St. James the Apostle

1612

The tserkva in Povoroznyk is the oldest in western Lemkivshchyna. Several times in its history it was close to destruction but was successfully rebuilt. Once after a spring flood it was moved further away from the river to higher ground. It should be pointed out that the priests in Povoroznyk came from one family for a period of 300 years (1638-1939). This family's name was Miys'kyj. The tserkva, that served more than 1000 faithful, is now used by the Polish Roman Catholic parish.
