The parish church built in 1615 was restored and completed in the 19th ct. In the recent history a nearby village of Zecevo became known widely because during the Homeland War volunteer army hit two planes of the Yugoslav army during the aerial bombing and the soldiers' shouted triumphantly: "Both went down!" which then meant a lot for the course of the war, and these words are still connected to this place.
