sight entered onto UNESCO World Heritage list UNESCO
The Greek Catholic Parish Church of St. Paraskevi in Kwiatoń (currently a Roman Catholic Auxiliary Church) arose in the second half of the C17th. The church is a classic example of Lemko church architecture, and on account of its proportions is considered one of the most beautiful Orthodox churches in Poland. It was erected using log construction with shingled walls and roofs. The interior décor contains polychrome work with figurative and ornamental motifs dating from 1811. It has retained its fittings intact: an iconostasis (screen with icons) by M. Bogdański from 1904, and in the chancel a C19th main altar as well as two side altars with icons of Madonna with Child and the Deposition.
