  • It is probably the largest church in Ukraine. We spent a good half hour in it, delishing the architecture.

  • Arrived in the early morning in Lviv. Transport doesn't go yet. We walked from the train station. We went to the Cathedral of St. Jura. There's no one there. We sat down on a bench in the square, waiting for the dawn. It's beautiful. and the cathedral looked monumentally in the rising sun. We went into the yard. The cathedral is huge, it is very ancient, figures, gates, arches... Historic building..... Beautiful and ... Embarrassing... The Middle Ages is coming with all its terrible events... It is difficult to get rid of thoughts about the Inquisition... Who cares.
