It was originally designed by Czech architect Josef Hlavka in the 1860's to be the residence of Bukovinian and Dalmatian Metropolitans. Today it is of the prettiest and most renowned universities in Ukraine featuring Romanesque and Byzantine architecture embellished with motifs of Ukrainian folk art.
