The village is unique for a number of reasons. After World War II, Pyrzany was settled almost entirely by the people from the Złoczów region, mainly the village of Kozaki which is located in the Ukraine today. The local community, longing for their lost homeland, believed for decades that the state borders would eventually change back and allow them to return to Kozaki. It was this hope that prevented them from taking over the Protestant church located in the heart of the village. Instead, they arranged a temporary church in the former dancing hall.
