The Collegiate Church of St. Lawrence is known from the 17th century built by a group of famous Italian architects. Zhovkva Castle, the town's oldest and largest building, is being converted into a culture and conference hall. In the northern part of the city you will see old synagogue - one of the biggest in Western Ukraine.
