Market Square - Lviv
November 20, 2013

The Lviv Interactive Project presents a new study: Market Square - Lviv. The aim of the study is to demonstrate the singular nature of Lviv’s Market Square both as an integrated architectural ensemble, and as the core of the city’s cultural and social vitality.

The study brings together materials from various Center for Urban History projects: detailed architectural descriptions of the Square’s stone manor homes; a gallery of historical images of Market Square which make it possible to track changes in the Square’s appearance from the 19th through the 20th centuries; historical maps which establish the layout of the city during particular historical periods (from the time when the city fortifications still stood in the late-18th century, and the city at the advent of its so-called fin de siècle); a short documentary on Nationally Registered architecture, and objects from the Lviv Historical Museum on exhibit among the buildings on Market Square.

This study will undoubtedly prove of interest to Lviv aficionados, residents, and visitors to the city alike. Examine the material for yourself at the Urban Center website.

For further information about the study, contact the project coordinator Olha Zarechnyuk.
