The House of the Chartoryis'kyis, the XVI-XIX centuries. Preservation #749 | Foto
13 Zarvans'ka St. (7 Kirov St.)

The original house was built not later than the beginning of the XVI century. The stone basement (7,5Х4,5 m), located in the northern part of the house and covered with a torispherical arch, has remained from it. In the middle of the XVII century the house was stone, one-storied, on the high socle, with span gablle roof, exceeded the red line of the building up by the front elevation. At the end of the XVII century, it was destroyed in the building above ground level, аnd in the middle of the XVIII century, it was restored and expanded. During the Great World War, it was damaged. Later, it was reconstructed.
The architectural look of the building is characterized by the traits of baroque and the elements of the Renaissance. It is stone, rectangular in plan, with rectangular risalite in front of the western elevation, plastered. The socle is of variable hight because of the slope of the relief. There is a small open porch in front of the eastern entrance. There is an entrance in the basement under the porch. The main building is covered with a hipped roof, the roof over the risalite is two-pitched. In its plan the building is divided into three parts by two cross walls, every of which makes up 2 lodgements. In the eastern part they are divided by the corridor. The coverings are vaulted, in the western part - along the beams. The risalite in the main western front is crowned with a pediment with a round window. The windows are decorated with white-stone platbands with typical for the baroque period projections in the upper corners. The unerwindow cornices are white-stone with profiling. The eastern entrance is framed with a white-stone portal, the upper part of which is developed to the hight of the principal cornice and turned into the decorative plane with relief image (the last hasn`t remained). The angles are with white-stone rusts, alternating according the principle of "tychok-lozhok". The principal cornice is made of stone and plastered.
A splendid fire-place of the middle - the 2nd part of the XVIII century, decorated in the Baroque forms has remained in the eastern wall of the south-western lodgement of the building. The monument is an example of the apartment block of the middle of the XVIII century and is remarkable for highly artistic decoration.
