Chapel of the Boim Family, Lviv

4.7
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.

    This place looks more interesting from outside, is is closed most of the time. Spent inside not more than 5 minutes. In case you are a real fan of old art and paintings, take your chance there.  more »

    The place is really mesmerizing. This part of the complex of Katedralnogo Chapel (or Latin) Cathedral. If you're not a fan of architecture and the words "portico", "Nava" etc for you from another world-the guide is not mandatory. You can simply look at the façade and wonder. And once again surprised. It's worth it

  • Terrific beauty inside and outside. Must visit in any case. It's little pearl of city. Taking shots is available but without flash!
  • One of 'must see' places in this city. Better to visit with guide, who can tell it full story - it's also very interesting.
  • 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!
  • Beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • 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.

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.
