Church of the St. Nicolas was built in 1866. Unlike the old church of the same name which was placed in the low place outside Logoysk, the new temple was built directly in the settlement on the hill. A remarkable event in the life of St. Nicholas Church occurred in 1907. In this year ancient icon of Mother of God was returned to the temple. On September 8 in 1907, a procession of many thousands took place, and the icon was solemnly transferred from Minsk to Logoisk. Since then it was closed only once when Bolsheviks came to the power. During World War II Germans allowed to hold services in it. From that time until today, the services in this church do not stop.
