Hostynnyi Dvir is the central object of Kontraktova Square. This is a rectangular closed building, built in the style of classicism. It was erected in 1809 instead of the old courtyard, the architect of which was Ivan Hrygorovych-Barsky.

It is interesting that here at the same time there were guild houses, workshops, warehouses and shops - a real prototype of modern shopping centers. After the Second World War, Hostynnyi Dvir looked deplorable and was recreated in order in the post-war period.
