1. Church of St. Jura, Drogobych

The temple was not always in Drogobych. It was transferred to the city from the village of Nadiev (Ivano-Frankivsk region) in 1656. The church was exchanged for salt. In those days the temple had to be transported by oxen. The belfry was built later - in 1678. For today, the interior murals of the church and the iconostasis of the 17th century are well preserved.
