The Boim Chapel is actually a tomb of the former medieval main city cemetery. It is the burial place of the rich Hungarian merchant Jerzy Boim and his family.

The chapel was completed in late renaissance style in the early 17th century. Both the exterior and interior are richly carved.

It is open to the public every day (except Mondays). The entrance fee is 2 UAH and taking photos costs an additional 2 UAH (05.08).

Directions:
The Boim Chapel can be found near the Latin Cathedral at the south eastern corner of the Cathedral Square (Ploshcha Katedralna).

Address: Boim Chapel, Katedralna pl. 1, Lviv
