What awaits you
You will find yourself in three of the most interesting dungeons in Lviv, where I will tell you how, why and in what era each of them arose.
Pharmacy MuseumThe oldest pharmacy in Lviv, which has existed for about 300 years, is located on Rynok Square - the main square of Lviv since the Middle Ages. Its old name is "Under the Black Eagle", and, according to legends, there was a secret laboratory of an alchemist in its dungeons. Now, in addition to the pharmacy itself, there is a pharmacy museum, where the outlandish equipment of ancient pharmacists is presented: machines for making pills, bottles, scales and presses. And in the basement of the museum are the very dungeons where we will go to find out how the pharmacists used them and what happened there
Dominican monasteryJust under the monastery, the remains of the residence of Prince Lev, after whom the old city was named, were recently discovered. In the local dungeons in the 16th century, the beautiful princess Galshka Ostrozhskaya found refuge, and you can still see the cell of the ascetic monk and the torture hall there, as well as exhibitions created specifically to present the history of the Dominican monastery more clearly. But most of all, you will be impressed by the underground interiors themselves and their atmosphere
Jesuit churchIn the dungeons of the Jesuit church (crypts), something very terrible happened: once people were buried here in the hope that those who found peace there would be the first to appear at the Last Judgment. All this led to epidemics, and all burials located within the city were taken out of its borders. But in the crypt of the Jesuit church there is a sarcophagus that belonged to one of the Lviv archbishops. Today you can see frescoes from the middle of the 18th century and a narrow corridor, the purpose of which is still unknown.
