Church of the sakramentok, Lviv
The building of a former church of the Sacramentines on Tershakovitsiv square holds an unquestionable respect.
It was built in 1718-1743 (perhaps by the plan of B. Merstin); in 1881 it was capitally reconstructed, especially the interior. Considering the undeniable dependence on the Austro-Bavarian examples, the building is very individual and at the same time typical for Lviv architecture of the time.
Located in the middle of a large, expanded garden, surrounded by an old monastery wall, it has a very picturesque look.
Our website can provide you with a tour of the church and sakramentok also offer to rent an apartment in Lviv, inexpensive, close to the church.
If you look at the church from the main facade, it is represented by a huge cap of a high tower, set on the axis of the building.
It is even more emphasized by the lack of a portal: the entrance to the church was from the monastery building adjacent to it. At the corners of the main facade there is a sort of cylindrical towers, hiding behind themselves side aisles.
The architect does not intend to identify the design and plan of the building. Dead stone is as alive: everything sails, waves, moves. The facade wall is bent; it it retreats backwards, then it rounds with the streamlined protrusions.
Volutes, niches, turrets, lunettes, dual and triple pilasters of a complex profile create smooth oscillation amplitudes. The appearance of the church is majestic in its own way; the dynamics of its forms please the eye, it fascinates with its solemn festivity.
Stricter and lapidary side facades are designed in a little bit different way. The main decorative motive of these facades are the windows in the form of ellipses, decorated with beautiful moldings.
