Earlier, a Wooden Church of St. Michael brought from Ukraine at the beginning of the last century burned down in Kinsky Garden near Petřín in Prague. According to firefighters, the fire destroyed almost the entire building, and the bell tower collapsed. The flames caused great damage, but no one was hurt.
St. Michael's Church is a wooden church built in the second half of the 17th century in Ukraine. In the first half of the 20th century, the church was dismantled and moved to Kinsky Garden, where it became part of the collection of the Ethnographic Museum.
The church is built in the Boyko style with elements of folk baroque. It had about 14 meters in lengths and 8 meters in width. The height of the bell tower was about 17 meters. The church has been used by the Orthodox Church since 2008.
