The unic history of the palace

The Palace of Counts Potockis in Lviv is not only one building of Polish magnates in Ukraine (well preserved Potocki Palace in Tulchin, Potocki Palace in Odessa, Potocki Palace in Chervonohrad et al.). Potocki Palace in Lviv was used by its owners for important meetings and receptions. 
The palace was built on the orders of Alfred Potocki in 1889 in the French style. Earl was known as a connoisseur of French architecture, therefore palace was designed by French architect Louis d'Overn. Construction was led by the architect J. Cybulski. Unfortunately, the earl Potocki didn’t sow the built  palace. The son of Alfred II - Roman Potocki completed the construction of palace.
