These photographs show the chancel of the Bernardine monastery,
which was built in the middle of the 16th century.
The interior frescos were painted by disciples of Rubens.

To the left of the church is the fragment of the inside of the
old city wall, Hlynianska Vezha.

and is being slowly restored. It is now a practicing
Greek-Catholic church.
