A great place to take photos is the curving carved staircase! Doesn’t take long to go through the building. No furniture...Just the architecture. You can imagine what it was like in it’s time. The fire p,aces and parquet floors are beautiful!

I don't think I've seen something more beautiful in a while. This is a must see in Lviv. Just don't go there on the wedding days (Friday and Saturday) since there are a lot of couples and it will be harder to make a good...More
