Construction of this building, located on Podvalnaya Street, 6 in Lviv, began in 1899 and lasted until 1901, when the fire station began its work.

It was designed by the outstanding Lviv architect of the late 19th – early 20th century Juliusz Hohberger (1840-1905) in collaboration with Ignatius Brunico.

The views of Lviv from the City Hall

At first glance, the tower of Lviv City Hall doesn’t look very promising in terms of city views it can offer.

But after you’ve climbed the tower (the height is 65 meters), you realize that it is worth it. Photos by horoshiyblog

Beautiful architecture of Lviv

The architecture of Lviv, almost not affected during the wars of the 20th century, reflects many European styles of different historical epochs.

After fires in 1527 and 1556, there are almost no traces of Gothic Lviv, but later epochs (Renaissance, Baroque, and Classicism) are well presented.

The historic center of Lviv with architectural monuments of the 14th-17th centuries is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Photos by anderver
