4.8/5 based on 170+ 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.
