Lviv National Academic Theatre of Opera and Ballet was designed by the famous European architect Sigmund Gorgolevski. Construction of this theater began in June 1897 and already finished in October 1900.
The architecture of the building contains elements of different architectural styles. Very interesting is the interior of the theater. On the ground floor there is the famous Hall of Mirrors, which is decorated with four female figures representing Love, Envy, Motherhood and Pride. Over the mirrors symbolically depicts the four seasons and three panels depict the poetry, music and dance.
The main hall is in the form of a lyre. Viewers are greeted with two sculptures, which are located above the white marble steps - Tragedy and Comedy.
