The Church of St. Wenceslas is the oldest historical sight in Paseky. This single-nave Baroque building with its segmented presbytery was built in 1789. The interior furnishings are in a unified Rococo style and date back to the latter half of the 18th century. The Rococo altars were brought in from the closed Church of St. Wenceslas in Stara Boleslav. The painting of St. Wenceslas on the high altar was created in the workshop of Vojtech Bartunek in 1886. The first repair after a long time, carried out in 1999, also included the highly original stone wall of the churchyard situated along the southern church wall which offers a beautiful panoramic view of the Krkonose Mountains.
