The restoration is scheduled to be completed this year.

The Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross in Drohobych was built in 1613. This sacred building was built at the expense of the owners of the salt mining industry in Drohobych. Throughout its history, the church has survived several fires, many alterations and reconstructions.

The wooden bell tower was built next to the church in 1661. It consists of three tiers and is square in plan. Together with the bell tower, the church forms a harmonious architectural ensemble.
