Prosp. Chervonoi Kalyny, 70 – Nativity Church
Church of the Nativity of the Most Blessed Mother of God (Rizdva Presvyatoyi Bohorodytsi) is a Greek Catholic parish church. The site, initially in the ownership of Lviv Municipality, was given to the Greek Catholic Church in 1990, and was blessed on 17 April 1990 by Bishop Filimon Kurchaba. The construction works started in 1995. In June 2001 during the Pope John Paul II's visit to Lviv the meeting with the Catholic Youth was organised in front of the church. In commemoration of the papal visit the parish constructed a monument to the pope and a memorial plaque.
