In 1898, Italian anarchist in Geneva was assassinated by Luigi Lukenni Austrian Empress Elisabeth "Sissi" of Habsburg. It was a kind of "Lady Di» XIX century. She was considered one of the most beautiful women in Europe, but the Emperor Franz Joseph did not love her. Do not hide it, he lived with his mistresses. Elizabeth almost never lived at the court. She traveled constantly. In his last trip to the Empress visited Geneva and is ready to cruise on Lake Geneva. But in her heart found a berth triangular file Italian anarchist.

As a tribute to Emperor Franz Joseph in 1903, on the road to Komarno in military exercises, and laid the Roman Catholic Church in Lviv Square Solar. Construction of the temple began in 1904. Consecrated it in the 1911th.

Catholic church was built with funds Elisabeth Lviv railway and the main temple was conceived as a rail district. And yet, the huge building was to block the view of the Cathedral of St. George for attending the Lvov train station (the palace). Thus, the railroad tried to emphasize the Roman Catholic nature of Lvov, after all, the Holy Ure was the Greek-Catholic church. But now church built in honor of the Austrian Empress, belongs to the Greek Catholics. They gave the community the church in 1991, but then it pereosvyatili in honor of Olga and Elizabeth.

Elisabeth Catholic (or Olga and Elizabeth Church) is the supreme monument to the city. Its height is 85 meters. Building was constructed according to the prominent kostelostroitelya Galicia Theodor-Mariana Talevskogo. Finish doing then known artists Voitovich, Zhepihovsky, Shostakevich, Sihulsky. Built a church in the form, repeating the ancient Gothic - Neo-Gothic forms. Most researchers do not attribute it to the architectural masterpieces of the city. But people are not obsessed (in a good way) on the architecture, majestic steeples on the area Kropivnitskogo are fascinating. They are head spin ...

During the Ukrainian-Polish war of 1918-19's church was shelled by artillery Ukrainian. Here, in the siege were the Poles. Now about this event reminds the inscription - «Ex obsidione ruthenorum».

In the Soviet period the church was started before the 70s. But even then, not imbued with its restoration - building turned into a warehouse. Organ pipes were removed and discarded. Strange all the same was the era. Simply does not fit in my head - Gothic warehouse height of 85 meters.

In 1991 the former church gave the Greek-Catholic community of Lviv - so ended a dispute between supporters of the Greek and Roman Catholic rites. Guess who won the argument. Now the building is in relatively good shape, but restoration work continues.
