The Potocki Palace in Lviv (Ukrainian: палац Потоцьких, palats Pototskykh; Polish: pałac Potockich we Lwowie) was built in the 1880s as an urban seat of Alfred Józef Potocki, Minister-President of Austria. No cost was spared to make it the grandest nobleman's residence in the city.

The French architect Louis de Verny elaborated all of Beaux-Arts stylistic devices to produce a hypertrophied imitation of a French hôtel particulier. An open, parklike setting was scored to give the mansion a sense of depth. At the start of the 20th century, the parkland gave way to a network of apartment buildings.Today Potocki Palace is a branch of the Lviv Art Gallery with exhibits of European paintings from the 14th – 18th centuries.
