YASTRYABYK

St. Luke the Evangelist

1856

The tserkva in Yastryabyk is of Lemko log construction style, but of somewhat different proportions. The "Babynets", or the entrance tower is rather low and located at a distance from the remainder of the structure. It is joined to the main body of the structure by a straight roof, giving the tserkva a distinctive silhouette. The tserkva was part of the parish in Zlotske and served some 550 parishioners. Today it serves as a Polish Roman Catholic kostel. YASTRYABYK
