Church of Jesuits or church of holy supreme apostles Peter and Paul is one of the most famous “must-visit” place in Lviv. It was built in the middle of the 16th century according to the project of Dzhakopo Briano, though only in 1740 became available to visit. Since 1740 there are some beautiful frescoes in the church that make it so attractive nowadays and remind about baroque and the greatness of this epoch.

Talking about restoration process, it was happening for few times - in 1842, 1879 and 1896. The whole interior hadn’t been changed since 1740 till the third restoration, so over mentioned year became really important in the history of this church. During the third restoration workers placed there some statues and made the impressive sculptural crucifixion on the side altar. Besides, from the northern side of the building was placed Jesuits collegian - that is why this church also has such name connected to Jesuits.

And concluding, nowadays this church can gather inside over five thousand visitors and is a really popular place to visit with excursion. Besides, one of its part is the stack of Stefanyk works. But you need to be aware that there is an entrance fee, but it changes through the years.
