The Cathedral looks huge from the outside and the exterior is beautiful, but it is surprisingly small inside, and quite plain. Didn't spend alot of time there as there really isn't much to see. A photogenic cathedral, from the outside.

The exterior looks really good and worth seeing but the interior is dissapointing. It is free to get in. There is a toilet within this monastry.

Not a huge interior but quite beautiful it has a very elaborate decorations which adorn the walls. Great altar. If churches are your thing, this is yet another great looking building. It looks bigger from outside than it actually is.

Also called St George's Cathedral. This Cathedral is well worth visiting. There is no entrance fee and you are allowed to take pictures without flash and please also respect the local community if ther is a ceremony on going. Stunnng nterior.

A baroque-rococo style cathedral built in XVIII century that remains one of the most important churches in Lviv and Western Ukraine. Brilliant both inside and outside.

If you are into beautiful buildings and breath-taking atmosphere, you should visit St. Yura Cathedral. It is a wonderful, must-see experience in Lviv. You can take photos and entrance is free for everyone.

This cathedral is very popular among citizens and beyond Lviv. The outside has been renovated recently, so now you can enjoy the beautiful view before entering the holy atmosphere of the cathedral. Don't miss it!

The incense, the music, the white space broken up by scenes of the judgment and return of Christ. Enjoy the view of the city, wide open spaces and a lovely park nearby. Cheers,

According to google maps it should be a 20 minutes walk - if you are fit, it´s absolutely no problem. The surrouinding area is nice. However, the Cathedral is on a small hill so better wear some trainers instead of flip... More
