City Walk
April 14, 2018
On April 14, 2018, at 1 pm, welcome to the city walk "Neo-Gothics. Around the High Castle" based on the materials elaborated in the "Lviv Interactive" project.

The walk will focus on the history of several buildings on the streets of Barvinskykh and Kryvonosa. This area between the High Castle and Piskova mount, used to host stone-works and military gunpowder depots, while in the late 19th century, the residential townhouses were built thereon. "In a healthy and beautiful area", "Fresh air…", "The healthiest district…" — those were the opening lines of real estate sales listings in this neighbourhood in the early 20th century. It shows that the townhouses and villas in this area were much wanted.

This year city walk will continue the topic of the last year’s itinerary that covered Neo-Gothic buildings on the streets of Stefanyk and Svoboda avenue. In this version, Neo-Gothic style is also typical only of the décor of the standard buildings of the time. Developers and businessmen-dealers, or top management of the post office who were able to get the needed amounts and build their villas here, were prevailing among the people who opted to settle down in this residential area to live or do their business.

The city walk is free of charge. The number of participants is restricted, please register at the link.

The walk will be conducted by an architectural editor of the "Lviv Interactive" project Olha Zarechniuk on the basis of her own research of the buildings.
