St. George's Church, Drohobych
St. George's Church in Drohobych is one of the oldest and best preserved timber churches of Galicia. The church, dating from ca. 1500, consists of three parts. The central block is square in plan and comprises the nave. Two other blocks contain the double apse and the narthex. Between 1678 and 1711, the church was renovated: the interior was frescoed, the octagonal structures built up, and a new belfry appeared.
It is one of the 16 churches that comprise a World Heritage Site named the Wooden tserkvas of the Carpathian region in Poland and Ukraine.
