The Bernadine Cathedral was originally built of wood in the 15th century, but later it was renovated with ornate stonework making it one of Lviv’s most beautiful churches. The cathedral’s facade is protected by statues of the sacred order of Bernardine; there are images of Mary, Jesus and apostles Peter and Andrew in the niches and the church is beautifully illuminated every evening. The cathedral is now a Greek-Catholic church of St. Andrew that belongs the Order of St. Basil the Great. Holy services are held on Sundays.
The church is located on Soborna Square, easy walking distance from Lviv’s Rynok Square and central avenue Prospect Svobody.
