Black Stone House

It is a historic architecturally rich building in black color. Maybe you will have your own idea why this wonderful house is black? Because scientists have already expressed so many versions that they can not come to one agreement. The building was built in 1577. Architecture is called Renaissance. Authorship is given to Petro Krasovskyi. Nowadays Lviv History Museum is situated in the mysterious black stone house.

Excursion: Lviv Villas

Joseph Frants Villa

The Sapeha Palace

In 1867, when this neo-baroque palace was being built for the money of Leon (Adam) Liudvih Sapeha, a part of Sapernyka street was considered to be the suburbs of Lviv.

A considerable territory, a part of which had been lost, was a part of the villa. In the time of Polish-Ukrainian opposition, it was a headquarters of Ukrainians. These days it is a Regional Community of Preservation of Historical and Cultural Memorials.

 

Citadel

It was built in the period of smoothbore artillery arms, that is why when rifled-bore weapons appeared the fortification ability of buildings decreased rapidly. In the time of Polish and Ukrainian opposition the main fights for the city took place there. The bombed walls of one of the towers remind about it. During the reign of Poland there was a skating rink. The Nazis first wanted to build a stadium on this place, but then they created a concentration camp Stalag-328 "Tsutadell" and a prison there. Now there is a hotel, a bank, custodia building of library named after Stefanyk and one of the towers remains slightly reconstructed like a historical memorial.

There were mikvahs (ritual saunas), header, houses of doyens.

"Golden Rose" Synagogue

The Catholics won the law that prohibited building of synagogue that would be higher than any city building, that is why Jewish community decided to get cunning. The synagogue was built buried into the ground. But after its construction expensive Lviv land made the fathers Jesuits feel uneasy and they took it from them and then they lost it again. In 1943 the Synagogue was exploded by the Nazis.
