Armenian Virgin Mary's Dormition Church, Lviv

4.8
In a quaint neighborhood of the old town, Armenian Virgin Mary's Dormition Church attracts visitors with its tall castle-like tower and picturesque interior spaces. Originally built in 1363, this structure suffered devastating fire damage in 1527. It was restored to its nearly original appearance between 1908 and 1927. Visit colonnade-lined yards and lavish interiors featuring precious icons of St. Gregory and the Virgin Mary, which were brought to the site in the 1600s. Observe the abundantly decorated domes and look for the 18th-century wooden altar. Outside you'll see an Armenian cemetery; some of the graves here date back to the 16th century.

  • In one of the ancient street of Lviv is a very beautiful church. Unusual frescoes on the walls-a deep, philosophical wise. You look and you can't tear your eyes. Unique mosaics, fresh and clean paint eyes rejoices. When you visit Lviv, always go to Virmensku and go to this temple. Particle Armenia in Lviv. When something has gone-but there's an old Armenian, which smelled delicious coffee and something sweet, asked me do in the temple? -Yes, of course! -answer! "What was here when komunjakah! Didn't know already how to offend. Yes and Ukrainians too. And all ... And where are they? Do not have them already. And we are with you in the Church. life rejoice to God pray! "-and went, stopping near each icon. She also told me about the unique fresco in this temple, at which the "visible" the souls of the dead monks. The philosophy of the frescoes is: being stable and invisible us world-eternal. In the same church beautiful stained glass-bright and reminiscent of paintings. In General, everything is a must see!
