Chapel of the Boim Family, Lviv

(190+ reviews on the web)
Landmark
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.

  • Chapel of the Holy Trinity and the passion of Christ Chapel Theatre family of Hungarian merchants Boim. Its founder was originating from Transylvania, György Boim, Councilman and Secretary of King Stefan Batory. Chapel of Boim family-mausoleum-was built on the site of the Latin Cathedral cemetery in 1609-11. 1615. The same cemetery was destroyed in the 18th century. The light dome is Christ of worried with an inscription: "he who enters here, let it will reflect its sorrows are bigger than mine." A wealth of ornaments, paintings and limestone, stiukowych and marble sculptures on the walls really amaze. This is the place you need to watch is mandatory.

  • Before 1 April of the mysterious chapel was closed and with 2-nd for 30! UAH, you can go inside. The Chapel and the truth is mysterious and there was once a charming (and now is), but obviously needs restoration and support. One inscription of Christ's "Look, pobachte, USI th HTO way jde: Chi є taqiy bіl', Jak bіl' you're mine" is? For 30 UAH look nothing alike, but we decided to invest in restoration and salary smotritel'nice, which surprises even held us mini tour.

  • 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.
