The coffee-shop is in the Italian patio "Royal Chambers", exposition of the History Museum
This richly decorated edifice consists of two buildings (architects P. Barbon and P. Rymlianyn) that were replanned and combined into one large mansion The buildings were purchased by a Greek merchant Konstantin Korniakt, who arrived in Lviv from Crete. Being engaged in wine trading and serving as a customs official of the Rusland, he soon became rich and was conferred a gentry's title.
After his death his family sold the house, which later became the property of Jacob Sobieski, the father of the future Polish King Jan III. Since then the house has been named the Royal Mansion. In 1634 Wladislaw IV stayed in the building. In 1908 it was turned into a museum.
Having paid a nominal entrance fee, you enter the famous Italian courtyard, where, under the supervision of the Lviv pillory and at the soli sounds of classical music, you can plunge into the bohemian life of modern Lviv. A few steps up the stairs, and the traveler is roaming the "Royal Chambers" - one of the best expositions of the History Museum. Even these meager fragments of the city's long lost glory produce a profound impression on the visitor.
