St.Yura Cathedral, Lviv

(4.8/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
As one of the main religious structures in the country, St.Yura Cathedral represents a blend of Eastern and Western architectural styles and dates back to 1744. Standing on a hill overlooking the city, the church's Baroque facade symbolizes power and strength, while the Rococo interior and the courtyard feature lavish ornamentation and soothing prayer areas. The priceless collection of artifacts and sculptures within includes a 17th-century icon of the Virgin Mary and a famous statue of St. George. You'll have the chance to see the dramatic stone portal and tour the tombs of distinguished Catholic figures. Look for the Baroque-style residential palace at the complex. You can also check out the souvenir shop, which has various religious gifts including vivid Eastern-style icons.

  • Beauty! Not even beauty, but beauty. The most beautiful church in Lviv, I think so. Very grandly.

  • The beautiful Cathedral, need to visit both inside (preferably during the service), and walk in the courtyard, look around. Generally a good area to Termini here, though an undervalued compared to market square.
