One of the attractions of the old town Lyskovo is wooden Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which is often called one of the most beautiful Orthodox churches in the region. The church was built by 1933 according to the project of Stanislav Petrovsky in the Zakopane style of architecture. At the time of the construction of the temple, Lyskovo was part of the Interwar Poland and for the construction it was required to obtain a permit, as well as collect an impressive amount for those times - 40 thousand zlotys.

In addition to the unique architecture, the temple was also lucky in terms of the absence of persecution-destruction. The church was not closed in the post-war years, and various warehouses for fertilizers, etc. were not made from it. So, for example, the nearby Church of the Most Sacred Heart was dismantled into bricks for the construction of a local school.
