  • Visiting this Cathedral is included in the obzhornuju tour, if you are a first time in Lviv, I advise you to start with the review. High Castle-lychakiv cemetery-Cathedral. Jura. And if you and Anna red hit, then you doubly fortunate) and tell and show and tell me where to go, what to see and how to get there. So go back to the Cathedral. It is beautiful. An interesting story, a mix of Catholic and Orthodox churches in the same Cathedral selects it. Worth a visit there.

  • Excellent krasivij Cathedral, velichestvennij and svetlij. A very peaceful place. An interesting feature is that you can buy a candle and put. And you can pay for a candle and note the employee what bi TI wanted to єtu a candle. In the center of the table with elektricheskimi candles, each signed. And the more people left money for a candle, the brighter it shone. Well worth a visit.
