Jewel of the City by Evelina Kremsdorf

  1. FEATURED in Old and New City Buildings group on June 19, 2010


Potocki Palace
Lvov, Ukraine

From Wikipedia
The Potocki Palace in Lvov was built in the 1880s as an urban seat of the Potocki aristocratic family. No cost was spared to make it the grandest nobleman’s residence in the city.
The French architect Louis de Verny elaborated all of Beaux-Arts stylisic devices to produce a hypertrophied imitation of a French hôtel particulier. An open, parklike setting was scored to give the mansion a sense of depth.
At the turn of the century the parkland gave way to a network of apartment buildings. The palace itself was adapted for holding wedding ceremonies in 1972 and subsequently underwent restoration.
