Today both the Lviv Region State Administration and the Regional Council occupy the Neo-Renaissance building of the Austrian vice-regency of the Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria. The building is designated as the "Monument of Architecture of the National Level".
It was erected in the 1870s to a design by architects Sylwester Hawryszkiewicz and Feliks Księżarski. The building's centerpiece is a grand staircase designed by Leonard Marconi. In 1943 the edifice witnessed the official ceremony of the inauguration of SS Division Galicia. The Communist administration decided to retain the building's former function by assigning it to the local regional committee of the Communist Party of Soviet Union. In front of the building stands a monument to Vyacheslav Chornovil who headed the regional administration in the early 1990s.
