Petra Doroshenka Street lies between Svobody Boulevard and Bandery Street. Its previous names were: Sykstuska (or Sixtuska Gasse up to 1938), Obrony Lwowa (1938-1940), Sykstusstrasse (1941-1944), and Zhovtneva (1940, 1944-1992). This street arose in place of a road that once led from the medieval city walls to the estate of Erasm Sikst/Erazm Sykst, mayor of Lviv in the early seventeenth century and famous medical doctor. In the early twentieth century, the Historicist rental houses were partly replaced by Jugendstil buildings, and later Constructivist ones. 1894 saw an electric tram line being laid in the lower part of the street, leading from the Central Train Station to the Hetmanski Bulwarks, where it forked, leading to the Galician County Fair in Sofijówka, and through the Rynok Square to Lychakiv/Łyczaków. In November 1918 bitter fighting went on for the building of the Main Post Office between Ukrainian and Polish troops.
