The building on Teatralna street 11 preserves the structure of two medieval townhouses in its basis and contains a part of the western wall of the town’s fortifications. It was built by well-known Lviv constructors, Mateo Brezani and Adolf Kamienobrodzki, and decorated by sculptor Leonard Marconi. The building was owned by respected Lviv citizens: Józef Poniński, the Hartmanns and the Zibers. Different institutions were located there, such as the Building Trade Credit Society, the state employment agency, the city address bureau, as well as various educational institutions in the Soviet time and later. The building is an architectural monument of local significance (protection no. 1039).

The Cathedral is the only object of Gothic architecture in Lviv, preserved in its integrity. Its tower, along with the City Hall, the Kornyakt tower, and the bell tower of the former Bernardine church are symbols of the city, dominating in the panorama of its central part.
At present this is the Roman Catholic Arch-Cathedral of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, also known as the Metropolitan Basilica, an architectural monument of national significance (protection number 316/0).

The monument to the Cossack kosh otaman was installed here in 1982. It was made by sculptor Petro Kulyk.
