Defensive Roman Catholic Church in Bishche

Bishche (Buszcze in Polish), founded in 1086, is a village with a population of about 500 people located in the Berezhany district of the Ternopil region, 66 km west of Ternopil.

The main attraction of the village is the Roman Catholic Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (1624-1638) – a defensive religious building, an architectural monument of national importance. Bishche on Google Maps. Photos by: Maxim Ritus.
