Lviv State University

This is the Lviv State University.

The building was erected in the middle of the last century
as Seim (Parliament) of Galicia and Lodomeria.
Lemberg (the Austrian name for Lviv) was the capital
of that province.

The standing statue on the top symbolizes Austria,
and the two sitting statues at either side symbolize
the two main rivers of old Galicia - Dnister and Visla.
