Operations with real estate
The Lviv Archiepiscopacy owned real estate in Lviv.
On the eve of the First World War, the Metropolitan actively invested money in real estate in the city of Lviv, for example on Horodotska 1, 37 and 4 Pyvovarska.
The largest of the Metropolitan’s real estate transactions had a religious basis. It was a purchase of 1,130 morgs (1 morg = 0,56 hectare) of land in 1913 in the village of Zarvanytsia, known in Galicia for a religious procession to the miraculous icon of the Mother of God.
In 1928 the Metropolitan bought the villa of Knyaz Hahariny in the picturesque outskirts of Rome.
In general, during the time he spent on the Metropolitan throne, A. Sheptytsky significantly increased the immovable possessions of the Galician Metropolitanate, thus ensuring the financial independence of his Church.
