The Chapel of St Nicholas

According to preserved records, the chapel was erected in the 14th or the 15th century, and renovated at the end of the 18th century when it was made suitable for worship services. The chapel upgrade is visible in the style of construction. When viewing the walls and their Gothic elements, it is clearly evident that the shrine was built in an earlier period, while the remaining part of the chapel was constructed later. A rectangular Gothic shrine was made from evenly carved stone. It is covered with a double-pitched cross vault resting on massive inverted cantilever-shaped consoles. The remnants of wall paintings are visible at the south wall and walls of the shrine (a circle with a red cross).

A significant part of the architectural sculptures and walls of the church were disassembled to be used in the construction of neighbouring village houses.
