Frescos abound near Lviv apartments

Art and antiquity surrounds you when walking about in central Lviv. However, one has to venture just a little bit deeper to unravel yet another layer of antiquity. Don’t be afraid to walk off the beaten path! Venture into the ” brahmas” or entrance ways otherwise know as “passage” . There you will find magnificent stairwells , amazing architectural details, intricately tiled floors. The photo insert is a superb example of such a treasure. The ceiling in this particular passage way is reminiscent of of a romantic and classical era. Appropriately, this beautiful fragment adorns the entrance to a favourite restaurant called ” Freska” . The owners were sensitive enough to delicately restore the ancient fresco for all to admire.
We at Lviv apartments applaud the entrepreneurs of Lviv who recognize the beautify of their architectural heritage.
