Center for Urban History

The building, which has been home to the Center for Urban History since 2006, was formerly the house of entrepreneur Leon Stauber and was designed by Ivan Levynskyi's bureau in collaboration with Tadeusz Obminski in 1905-1906. The entire street, which today is named after Academician Bohomolets, is a unique architectural ensemble in the Secession style and embodies the early twentieth-century ideas of modern housing, beauty and health, and the combination of architecture and urban landscaping.

This heritage is of great importance to our institution. As Bohomoltsia, 6 is an integral part of our presence in the city, we have researched the history of the building's architecture, the life stories of its residents, and the history of the houses in the neighborhood.

We shared our findings and research on the history and architecture of the building and the street at the festival and exhibitions in a number of publications on Lviv Interactive and included them in city walks and excursions, starting with the European Heritage Days in 2015.

April 16, 2024, marks the twentieth anniversary of the Center for Urban History. April 16, 2024, marks the twentieth anniversary of the founding of the Center for Urban History. On that day in 2004 in Vienna, Dr. Harald Binder founded a private foundation with the intention of creating an institutional structure for the urban history research.
