One of the old buildings in the center of the town. I found it really nice with those arcs and whimsical style. I presume it dates from the Austrian period (before 1918)

Houses along Halytska (Galician) street. Lime trees are planted along the road. Trees are usually painted with slaked limestone from the bottom in public areas and gardens in Ukraine.

Local police building. So called "militsiya" in Soviet era terminology. Ukrainian yellow blue flaf waving from the balcony. I was a bit afraid to take picture of this, since some policeman could ask "Hey what are you doing? A spy?":) But luckily no one noticed:)

The same Halytska street in the center of Peremyshlany. Table on the right has "Rynok" (market) written to on it with arrow indicating to the right. So as you guessed, local market is to the right."

At the Jewish Cemetery in Peremyshlyany, near the ohel (grave chapel) of Jewish tsaddik and Hassidic rabbi Maer Peremyshlaner and his family. He was so hole that four virgins carried him when he died to burry. I am second from the right, my friend Slavik or Yaroslav Kolomiychenko - last to the left, my older brother Bohdan - the last to the right and second from the left is my English friend John, whom we went to show around Western Ukraine.
