Cathedral of Saint Jura

St. George's Cathedral in Lviv - one of the symbols of the city - was built in the magnificent baroque style by B. Meretin. The facade is decorated with a monumental sculpture by the outstanding Lviv sculptor Ioann Pinzel. 

The figure of St. George the Victorious - the patron saint of not only the cathedral, but also the whole of Lviv - towers over the entire cathedral. The temple was installed in the princely city, on the site of a cave where hermits lived in ancient times. A stone terrace with two staircases and balustrades leads to the temple. Under the stairs is the cave of St. Onuphry in memory of the hermits who lived here.

An ancient bell on the bell tower reminds of ancient times. In the Old Slavonic language, it is written in Cyrillic on it: "In le [to] 6849 [1341] the solilo was a bell to this saint Yuri under Princes Dmitri."
