The Trinitarian monastery and church was an important part of the original planning structure of the Stanislawow fortress city (now Ivano-Frankivsk), an architectural complex of ground and underground buildings with a religious, residential and warehouse purpose. The research identifies the original form and composition, historical building periods, further development and current state of the monastic complex of the Trinitarians. Dozens of historians, architects, local history explorers have left their essays or articles about this complex. However, the church itself was not examined, as it was destroyed in the 19th century. Using the method of analogies, the architect Zenoviy Sokolovsky has recently made a graphic reconstruction of the facade of the Trinitarian church and monastery. The author took as a basis the facades of Trinitarian monastery in Kamianets-Podilskyi  and Lutsk. Due to the usage of the analogies method, this work should be treated with caution, as it is not confirmed by any real iconographic source. This thesis is confirmed by the source we found. The study was conducted to determine the original appearance of the Trinitarian church and monastery in Stanislawow, its construction periods, planning structure and state of preservation.
