The Korniakt Palace has its inner courtyard, known as "the Italian courtyard" in Lviv. It was created in the time of King Jan III Sobieski, after two palace buildings were joined together. For some time the famous Italian-origin wife of the king - Marie Casimire Louise de La Grange d'Arquien, better known as Marysieńka, lived there. The cosy inner courtyard surrounded by three-floor open galleries gives a sense of open space and at the same time has great acoustics. Nowadays, it is one of the best places for musical concerts and performances.
