In the center of the picture the viewer is presented Lviv city arsenal - a magnificent fortification, built of red stone. The facade that looms menacingly over the roadway is the epitome of architectural thought architects of the Renaissance. To its north wall leaned a small octagonal tower-faithful companion, even older than the protagonist canvas. Thick rectangular walls and planted with high slits indicate the persistence of conflicts between people in this difficult historical period. Against the background of other buildings is a powerful arsenal of guardian with bright gilt armor, sharply contrasting with the overall bleak landscape. In the middle of the road stood two passers-yielding red tram that goes along way. What small and weak they look in comparison with the old giant. Winter, like a white silk blanket covered the streets of the old city of Lviv. Did not avoid it and our strict guard adorning its roof with snow, as if forehead gray, only confirmed this his advanced age and veteran status. The sun barely breaks its rays thick gray clouds slowly rolling westward. Lviv evening comes.
