  St. Nicholas, Moczary, Poland
by lemkouk

(Ukrainian: Mochary) This tserkva served a parish of 700 before the banishment. It was built in 1903 replacing an earlier structure and dedicated to St. Nicholas the Miracle Worker. It is in Boyko style of three two-storey chambers with a wide overhanging opasanya. Since 1951 it was used as a storage shed, but has been restored. It has a gatehouse of squared logs and has been fitted with a ramp to be accessible to the residents of the nearby home for the disabled.
Looking up the valley across the road from St Nicholas, the Poland/Ukraine border is only 6km.

Directions: From Ustrzyki Dolne drive south east 3 km on Route 896 and turn left. At the Y intersection, bear right to Moczary.
