The city walk focusing on the history of Bohomoltsia street took place on April, 8th. This is a small street in the city center, built in 1903-1908 which is an outstanding example of urban planning. The street was the first in Lviv to be conceived as a holistic project. It is an architectural ensemble centered around a small green area. Each building here is an outstanding example of Art Nouveau architecture (Secession style), were many authentic decorative elements remain. At the heart of the walk is a study "The Secession Ensemble of Bohomoltsya Streets" conducted by architect Olha Zarechnyuk and the results of oral history research project "The History of One Street" which has been underway at the Center for Urban History since 2007.
In the coming months other researchers will join our series exploring the city. Please watch for information on the Center's website and on the Center for Urban History's Facebook page.
