Chapel of the Boim Family, Lviv
(4.8/5 based on 180 reviews on the web)
Sitting on the cathedral square, Chapel of the Boim Family houses the remains of 14 members of the Boim dynasty. Created in 1609, this structure features elements of Polish and Italian architecture, ornamented with Dutch-style sculptures. The facade represents a solid example of bourgeois art, and exaggerated motifs adorn almost every inch of the chapel. Observe murals and fresco images depicting both people of that era and Biblical characters, and look for one wall that appears as if it was turned inside-out. Study the complex dome adornments and search for brass angel-like faces. Plan your visit to Chapel of the Boim Family and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Lviv vacation trip planner.

  • Well located monument, well maintained and well fits the old architecture. Good for fans of sacred objects.

  • Gorgeous monument of religious architecture in Cathedral Square. The Boim Chapel was built from 1609 to 1615 for a Hungarian aristocratic family. Amazing stone carvings on the walls 
  • Prepare yourself for the fact that for 15 UAH, you will stand at the entrance and twirl the head)) space inside a chapel very little going nowhere, but the original details interior design concentration per square meter rolls over. In General, interesting here is only for those who like "Museum" vacation.

  • The chapel itself is quite beautiful and worth the visit. It is a very interesting architecture style with the front full of interesting biblical/ historical figures. This kissing post right outside is also a fun photo opportunity!
  • One of the most stunning religious places in L'viv, personal favorite!! Very nice looks and cosy atmosphere
  • Gorgeous chapel. Lots of people coming there to get married. Don't for Ethridge walk around the outside of the chapel start enjoying the inside of it.
