Very beautiful statue of the Virgin Mary in centre of Lviv. It is a sacred place where locals often stop and pray and posters remind of the victims of the bloody conflict in Eastern Ukraine. It is a beautiful fountain and statue that invites you to stop and consider ones life.

This statue/fountain is a place where many locals come to pray and often has little floral tributes at its foot. It's by a busy roundabout, from here you can take a pleasant stroll along Svobody Prospect all the way to the Opera House.

This is a lovely statue and worth visiting to admire. It is close by many other things to see. A nice place to just sit and enjoy the surroundings.

Simply one of the best fountains I've seen next to the Mannis Pee one in Belgium. Just around the corner is the centre of Lviv! Very beautiful place for food, photos, souvenirs, and others. Seems like if I was in Prague or in another state. You can of course throw coins in the fountain to make a wish to the... More

Nice statue down is a fountain, but I think not so good location for praying. Because it is on prospect svobody, and no silence over there. Also three side of that statue are roads and full of vehicles.

Today as we were trying not to get hit by a car my eyes wander to this lovely statue, I was quite taken with people quietly praying as cars bustled by in this busy city,

This about as traditionally Catholic a statue of the Virgin Mary as you can get, but it's also the most tranquil statue along Prospect Svobody. On Catholic holidays frequently there are processions that stop here either for readings or songs.

I find it interesting that a statue of Mary is more prominent and more visited than the statue of Jesus just a few feet away.
