Saint Nicholas Church. Nicholas wooden church from 1824, now used jointly by the Catholics of the Latin rite and Byzantine. Church was founded in 1824 on the site of an earlier. In 1869, supplemented by the interior of the iconostasis, in 1896 - was rebuilt. Church was open to the Vistula Action when Ukrainian local people were deported, and Polish People's Army, it took such all the bells. Adapted for the Roman Catholic Church funeral chapel so escaped total ruin. In the years 1970-1973 has been restored with other grassroots initiatives in place (or returning) Greek Catholic Church in spite of signs of repression by the SB. In 1976, the Roman Catholic bishop of Przemysl has agreed to open the church in the most important holidays. In 1987 the church was opened permanently.

This is an overview of Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
