The Orthodox Church of Assumption and its belfry,
built at the very beginning of the 17th century
by the Italian architect Paolo Romano.
The belfry is the highest in the city
- 86 meters high.

Most of the money for the church
was given by Konstantin Korniakt,
a Greek wine trader who made a lot of money
selling Greek wine in Poland.
As a result he developed strong doubts about
the salvation of his soul, so built this church.
For centuries this church has been
the centre of the Orthodox community of Lviv.

This is the chapel of Boim
standing by the central Catholic cathedral.
On the top of the cupola is
the statue called, "Jesus in tears."

The chapel was built in 1606.
At that time, near the cathedral was a cemetery,
which was moved out in the end of 18th century,
so this chapel is one of two chapels that have survived.

This shows the church of the Domonicans,
built by the Dutch architect Jan de Vitte
in the middle of the 18th century.
The monastery to the left of the church
was built much earlier - in the 16th century.

Above the entrance to the church is
the slogan of the Dominican Order saying,
"Soli Deo Honor et Gloria."

This is the church and the convent of St. Clarissa
built in the 17th and much rebuilt in the 20th century.

It now houses the museum of baroque sculptor
Joahin Pinzel, known for his sacral statues.
