Lviv fire station – a brick masterpiece in Romanesque style

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.
