Armenian Virgin Mary's Dormition Church, Lviv

4.7
#4 of 15 in Historic Sites in Lviv
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.

  • If I were without a guide-certainly I'd somehow missed-a neglected building, uninteresting entry, but in the middle ... Property, but in such an unusual way that connects the old art of these more contemporary paintings on the wall. Fantastic shot of the funeral of the Holy, the idea of submitting the angels-unusual ... but that's a must see. The beautiful vaulted ceiling. One of the most atmospheric and unusual decor. Excellent acoustics. It is a pity that not found on any concert. Maybe next time:)

  • When did you ever the opportunity to see an Armenian Church from the inside? Worth a visit, others because of the wonderful frescoes. The atmosphere is a very special, you can feel it in the courtyard very much.

Where to stay in Lviv

Although many visitors to Lviv stay near the relatively expensive town center, the city offers plenty of budget-friendly options within walking distance of this central district. Guesthouses and small hostels provide simple but tidy rooms with luggage storage and free Wi-Fi. Alternatively, look for mid-range hotels near public bus stops, where you'll have quick access to the major sights at considerably less cost than the centrally located boutique hotels.
