    Those who are interested in the history of Ukraine, this free Museum at the heart is set, in which there are free guided tours in English. This is the only building in Lviv, which has been designed as a prison (otherwise former monasteries were used in the Soviet era as prisons). There were over 3,000 prisoners at times of the NKVD here, in a cell, the place is documented, standing to an inmate during this time. Founded it was taken over by Poland, then by the Soviets, then for a short time by the Germans, then again by the Soviets to be carried. Yet shortly after the beginning of the independence of Ukraine, the prison continued. In Soviet times, there was no heating and no toilets, which changed only in the 60s under Khrushchev. Sadly, people people can hurt. Also sad, that a German (!) Student troupe tutorial had to occur towards the head of the free tour. Embarrassing and shameful!

    The main plus of this Museum, that he is in premises which are not restored and remember the past and its horror. Minimalism and simplicity. Even furniture Polish times door cameras too. Furniture, bed of the Soviet years.
