Lviv - Armenian Cathedral

In the heart of the old city we find the Armenian Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary dating back to 1363.
In 1945 the Soviet authorities closed the cathedral and the building was used for storing plundered sacral art.
Almost all of the Armenians who were Polish before 1945 were expelled to Poland.
Today the cathedral is used by the Armenian Apostolic Church and the Armenian Catholic community.

There’s also a beautiful bell tower. Not visible on the main picture but in the WS you find a photo taken on the tower of the town hall (Ratusha) that also shows the bell tower.

In a second WS you see a part of the town hall with its tower that can be climbed.
On the foreground a Greek guy is trying to make impression.
