As Igor Holyboroda has already usefully mentioned, Schleichera street in Lviv is today called Bazarna.

Researchers interested in the naming and history of streets in Lviv (Lwow, Lemberg) can search a helpful database provided by the Center for Urban History of East Central Europe. The searchable table is at:
 http://www.lvivcenter.org/en/streets/streets/

From this, you can find the street indicated on a city map, as well as information on the history of the street's names. In this case, you can see that the street wa named Schleichera (after Filip Schleicher) from 1934 to 1950, with a hiatus from 1943-1944, when the Nazi Germans changed the name to Brauhausgasse, presumably not wanting to honour a Jewish former deputy mayor of Lwow. Schleicher, who was a lawyer, was deputy mayor from 1913 to 1927. The street has been called Bazarna since 1950.
