From the history
An idol of ancient Slavic deity of Swietowit was found at Lopushnia.
During the First World War there was a front line in Lopushnia and the surrounding areas. As result there are numerous trenches and bomb holes in the local forests since those times. There is also First World War Turkish Military Cemetery and Memorial to the fallen Turkish soldiers here. There is also Austrian Military Cemetery, in desolate condition.
There is a significant community of deported Ukrainians from south east Poland (Lemkovyna and Nadsannia / Upper San valley) residing in Lopushnia. They have been forcefully resettled here during "Action Vistula" in late 1940s. A monument commemorating this tragic event (with the names of deportees and their original villages) has been erected next to the new church in Lopushnia.
