Sviatogo Yura (St. George) Cathedral. .
Just another example of linking creative Western conceptions with local traditions Greek-Catholic \nCathedral of St. Yury (aka St. George) is dominating the city. It was built by Bernard Merderer \nalso known as Bernard Meretyn who brought some influence of late baroque. It resembles the \nMonastery Complexes by Jacob Prandtauer in Melk (Austria) or Superga Philippo Juvara in Turin \nbut as to planning and pyramidal composition Cathedral is closely connected with ancient \ntraditions of Ukrainian church architecture.
