The Greek Catholic Church of the Nativity of the Mother of God in Królowa Górna was erected in 1815.
The spire probably comes from a previous C18th church which stood on the same spot. Despite alterations the building has retained the typical features of a West Lemko church. The walls and ceilings are adorned with neo-baroque polychrome decoration from the beginning of the C20th (in the middle of the nave ceiling there is a depiction of The Last Judgement). The church fittings include a C19th iconostasis, a main altar consisting of a C19th base and an C18th altarpiece (with an Oranta icon of Our Lady), two side altars with icons of St. Cyril and St. Methodious and St. Włodzimierz and St. Olga.
