The bell tower of the church of St. Paraskeva (wooden) 1732 (1454 /2).And the village has one sight of architecture local importance: The Parish School of the 18th century. (556–м).All these have disappeared. The church and bell tower have burned down around 2007. They have been rebuilt in concrete. The Parish school has been destroyed and a house has been built in its place. I took pictures of all the above. The only that remains is the presbytery in poor shape... It looks like abandoned since the priest was either deported, hanged or shot.
