The Bernardin Church from 1600, now St.Andrew Ukrainian Catholic Church in Lviv. You can see small gallery on the hight about 20 m, from which I took a picture. You can see the figure of Archangel - the Gods Messenger. Beautiful paintings were restored and conserved for the money of European Union couple of years ago. About the Church and Monastery on Wiki
