Key landmarks

1

City Hall

It is one of the three town halls in Ukraine, which was built in the constructivist style. Today's elegant structure has repeatedly changed its appearance for more than 400 years. The very first Town Hall was created by a nine-story round wooden tower in the Renaissance style, although it performed the same functions as a modern building.

2

Armenian Church

The interior of the church is decorated with carvings and moldings of Ionic order, frescoes and wooden sculptures. There was a miracle-working icon of Our Lady in the church, which in 1945 was taken to Poland by the Armenian community. Now the church belongs to the Ukrainian Autocephalous Orthodox Church, and its auxiliary rooms are adjusted for a seminary.

3

Bastion

The fortress gallery "Bastion" is located next to one of the historical monuments of Ivano-Frankivsk, the remains of the city's fortress wall. The name of the shopping and entertainment complex was borrowed from one of the bastions of the Stanislav Fortress, which was restored in 2002. The remains of the old wall are included in the new building, which resembles a historical bastion.

4

Gartenberg Passage

The Gartenberg Passage in Ivano-Frankivsk was built in 1904 on the model of similar shopping centres in Western Europe. It was a covered gallery with a row of shops on both sides of the passage, and a fashionable cafe "Edison" on the second floor. Czech architect Karel Boblik was the architect of the project. In 1960, a department store, later "Children's World", was opened here. In recent years, it has been an artistic space.

5

Sheptytsky Square

Sheptytsky Square in Ivano-Frankivsk welcomes thousands of tourists every year. This atmospheric place was named in honour of Andrii Sheptytskyi because he did a lot for the city. The square is popular both among city residents and tourists. This is because Rynok Square is located nearby. Many festivals are also held on the square: "Festival of Blacksmiths", "Feast of Bread" and "Carpathian Vernissage".
