Ecclesiastic monuments. The oldest building in the village is the wooden Roman-Catholic church of St. Archangel Michael from the second half of 15th century. The object is a real estate monument and belongs to a unique set of Silesian wooden churches of the Beskydy region. There is a listed organ in the church of the organ builder František Hočička of 1800. Another interesting construction is the chapel of St. Florian, where 30 ceramic statuettes of St. Florian were placed. These statuettes were made by local children.
