Church of St. George (16 century)

Church of the Holy Great Martyr George is a Permanent Orthodox (UOC-MP) temple in Lyuboml in Volyn region. The church was built on the orders of Prince Vladimir Vasylkovych in the 13th century (in the 16th century, was rebuilt and in 18th the bell-tower was built). Probably, the church built the architect Oleksa an outstanding artist who built many fortified towns on orders of princes of Volyn.

The church was dedicated to the Holy Great George - the patron of Russian princes since the days of Vladimir the Great. After all, in St. George Monastery in Chersonesos, Vladimir was baptized. But on the icons that adorned the church, people saw not only the hero-warrior that attacks Snake, but considerably closer to the man himself - dear to the heart of farmer Juriy - the patron saint of animals. And today both names of churches exist: St. George and Juriy.

Inside the building preserved paintings of the late 19th century. In the western part of the church under the arch are choirs. The temple is an architectural monument of national importance.
