Lviv's main museum is split into three collections dotted around pl Rynok. The best branch is at No 6. Here you can enjoy the Italian Renaissance inner courtyard and slide around the exquisitely decorated interior in cloth slippers on the woodcut parquetry floor, made from 14 kinds of hardwood. It was also here on 22 December 1686 that Poland and Russia signed the treaty that partitioned Ukraine.

No 2, the Palazzo Bandinelli, covers 19th- and 20th-century history, including two floors dedicated to the Ukrainian nationalist movement. No 24 expounds on the city's very early days. The highlight is an enormous painting depicting the old walled city of Lviv in the 18th century. Pr Svobody was a moat.
