L'viv – the Ensemble of the Historic Centre

I would love to make a trip through all Europe and visit two or three cities of each country. Lviv would definitely be one of those cities!

The city of L''viv, founded in the late Middle Ages, was a flourishing administrative, religious and commercial centre for several centuries.

The medieval urban topography has been preserved virtually intact (in particular, there is evidence of the different ethnic communities who lived there), along with many fine Baroque and later buildings. in:

Lviv Latin Cathedral
This postcard is an official sent by Maria

The Archcathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, usually called simply the Latin Cathedral (UkrainianЛати́нський собо́р) is a 14th-century Roman Catholic cathedral in Lviv, western Ukraine. It is located in the city's Old Town, in the south western corner of the market square, called Cathedral Square.
The first church built on this site was a small wooden Roman Catholic church dedicated to the Holy Trinity, built in 1344 and lost in a fire six years later. In 1360, the king Casimir III of Poland founded the construction of the present day church, built in Gothic style, for a cathedral of the newly created Latin diocese. - in: wikipedia

While I was doing the research for this post I realized that the Opera House is not part of this World Heritage site, however, I decided to keep this postcard here because is still a wonderful building!

The Lviv Theatre of Opera and Ballet is an opera house and theatre located in LvivUkraine. The building was built between 1897 and 1900. - in: wikipedia
