Orthodox church st. Kosma and Damian in Tylicz

Currently, a Roman Catholic cemetery church. The church was built in 1743.

Currently, a Roman Catholic cemetery church. The church was built in 1743. The church in Tricity, West Lemko, has a carcass construction, and its walls are timbered and reinforced with foxes.


Adjacent to the nave by the iconostasis are two rooms for singers, characteristic of eastern church architecture, the so-called kriłosy not found anywhere else in the Lemko region. Currently, they function as side chapels.

There is a polychrome inside. Some of the paintings made as part of it (including the figures of Saints Olga and Vladimir) are copies of icons from the cathedral of St. Vladimir in Kiev. The older one is the iconostasis, built in the 18th century. In the 1980s, unknown perpetrators removed some of the images from it, which were supplemented after 2001. A special feature of the iconostasis in the church in Tylicz is the size of the icons of the temple's patrons and of St. Nicholas, which, although located in the lowest row of icons, are much higher than the tsarist gate and reach the next row.

A similar construction occurs only in the temple in Milik. The nave is covered with a tented roof, while the chancel has a ridge roof.

There is a fence around the church with a belfry and a former and contemporary cemetery.
