Accidentally found this place by walking the street, but the experience inside was special.
Old Gentleman's club, now a museum, with a long history, is one of the places in Lviv worth visiting.
You would not be sorry visiting this wooden decorated building. Take your chance to visit. This building can compare to the best European tourist sports.

Very beautiful chapel. I did not got inside because they were too many people waiting to get in but the entrance is amazing, maybe next time I will visit the interior too I see from the reviews that is deserves a look.

Small but beautiful chapel covered with carvings on the outside, sculptures and moldings on the inside. Over 400 years old. It is located in the center of the Old Town, near the Cathedral Basilica of the Assumption.

Маленькая, но красивая часовня, покрытая резьбой снаружи, скульптурами и лепкой внутри. Возраст часовни превышает 400 лет. Находится в центре Старого города, у Латинского собора.

Small Chapel is a very old building with a lot of history. Skillful wall sculptures outside, very nice view from inside.

The exterior is striking enough, with its ornate facade, but it's worth paying the minimal fee to look inside - although it's not particularly roomy and if you get there at the same time as a tour group you'll be fighting for space.

When thinking about a chapel you think of a rather small building, but this is the contrary. Very beautiful and so huge. Worth visiting.

The facade of the chapel is stunning. The detail on the 17th century stone work really is amazing. You can't miss this building when you walk past.

We did not enter as you have to pay 50uah for 1 room which we felt was rather expensive for Lviv. There is also a QR code on a tile near the front of the chapel which will also give you it's history.

Excellent example of late Renaissance architecture. Chapel build for adviser to Polish king Stefan Batory. Extremely rich interior though very fatigue. During Soviet times chapel turned into municipal depot of cleaning materials. Now under hostage of local Polish community needs quick and solid restoration.

We visited several cathedrals/churches/chapels during our visit and this one certainly stood out. It was pretty small inside, essentially just one room, and would probably accommodate no more than 10 people at a time. A printed guide was available in several languages including English. The cathedral is well over 400 years old and the inside is particularly decorative. The ceiling is very very high for such a small building and indeed seems higher inside than outside!

This was the only religious building we visited where there was a fee but it was only the equivilent of £1 so not too bad

Wow! What a chapel. It is just one room but you cannot help but stand and stare at the hundreds of intricate carvings around the alter. It is 30 hr to enter. The lady at the door handed us a couple of laminated sheets describing the chapel and the carvings (these are also on the table for you to look at). Look out for the image of the devil under the chair of Judas, which is the reason this chapel is not consecrated! Also look for a secret door which was used as a secret passageway... the exterior is also stunning with an unusual statue of Jesus on the top. An absolute must see in Lviv.
