My pics of L'viv - Leopolis, Ukraine

A little history...

L'viv - Leopolis in latin - is located in the western part of Ukraine, not far from the polish border. Once a very rich and important polish city it was the second seat of the kings of Poland until, in 1772 it became austrian. Lvi'v has always been a cross-road of cultures and religions. The city hosts the greek ortodox church, it is the center of the roman catholic church in Ukraine and, until 2005, it was the center of the greek catholic church of Ukraine. It is also considered to be the second most important seat of the armenian church, due to the protection offered by the kings Poland to the armenian refugees under religious persecution. For the same reason L'viv had one of the largest and more active jewish community in Europe. The city became russian in 1939, after being annected again to Poland after WWI.
Martin Buber, Alfred Tarski, Wladislaw Tatarkiewicz, Stanislaw Lem, Leopold Sacher-Masoch, Wilhelm Reich, were some among the great interpreters of the unique spirit of this city.

Thank you. But somehow I'm not satisfied by the final effect, they looked far more better before the 'treatment' with tinypic, in my computer..

I knew my choice of the subjects wouldn't be totally understood...Anyway I have many pictures of market square with different angles (right above in black and white) but I did not have the chance to get some pictures of the opera. Some more pictures of the market square:
