House number 11 on Svobody Avenue built in 1882 – 1884 by the architect E.Hall for the «Hôtel Central». House is well preserved as in the main volumes and in architectural detail. The 2nd floor is decorated with a frieze of griffins reliefs. In the photo we see both fronts of the corner building: on the left – in front of Doroshenka street, right – on Svobody avenue.

Lesja Ukrainka stayed here in April 1901 while travel to Chernivtsi (see her letter to the mother of 9 (22) April 1901, sent from the hotel).
