Last week I made few photos in St. George Cathedral, Lviv

St. George Cathedral is the main sanctuary of the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church. In July 1700 the act of consolidation of Lviv archdiocese with Rome was proclaimed here. The first church on St. George Mountain (Svyatoyurs'ka Hora) existed even in times of the old Ukrainian Gaiician-Volyn' state. Many times the church was destroyed by invaders, but it has always been reconstructed. In the XVIII century it appeared in present grandeur and beauty.

The most precious relics of the church is the Wonder-working Icon of the Virgin Mary (XVII c.). It was brought in Lviv from Terebovlia in 1674 by bishop Joseph (Shumlians'kyi).

With a great effort of metropolitan Atanasy Sheptyts'ky on the ruins of the ancient church a new one was erected a pearl of European art. (1774 - 1761, architect — B. Meretyn, sculptor — I.Pinsel). In its architecture the Western influences and traditions of Ukrainian church building merged.
