The best tourist places in Lviv

The first must see place in Lviv city is Rynok Square, wich has no difference in atmosphere and well-tended from the squares of Vienna, Krakow, Prague and other European cities. Describe all the attractions of Rynok Square does not make sense because they are everywhere: you go through it like in a museum.

The Lviv City Hall is no less popular. Its height is 65 meters, and to climb to the top you have to overcome 408 steps, and you will rich the viewing platform where the whole city is in full view. If you will be on Rynok Square, please visit The Lviv City Hall without fail.

Lviv Opera House – the same who is pictured on a 20-hryvnia back banknote. Built at the end of the 19th century by the Polish architect Zygmunt Gorgolewski, is an excellent example of neo-Renaissance and neo-baroque architecture. Also there you can visit the classic European operas, which are performed in the original language.

Potocki Palace is located at 15 Kopernika street, was built in 1889 in the style of classicism, striking in its elegance and greatness both outside and inside. Now there is also the oldest icon of Lviv.

Be sure to walk to St. George's Cathedral, the main shrine of Ukrainian Greek Catholics. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Complex consists of the baroque cathedral, the bell tower, the palace of the Greek Catholic metropolitans, chapels, the garden and other elements.

Romantics and park lovers can take pleasure in the Lviv High Castle - a park located on Castle Hill. It is named after the castle built by Prince Leo Danilovich. Unfortunately, today only a few ruins remind about that.

We also recommend one of the impressive architecture - Boim Chapel Lviv, built in the early 17th century. A unique building which is attributed to the monuments of sacral architecture.

Lychakivsky Cemetery - a memorial complex on 40 hectares, one of the oldest functioning communal cemeteries in Europe. Has been in effect since 1786. Such famous personalities as Ivan Franko, Solomiya Krushelnytska, Volodymyr Ivasiuk and others were buried there.

The Italian courtyard is a very calm and cozy place in the heart of Lviv city. Made by Italian architects, it conveys the atmosphere of the courtyards of Rome and Venice. Here you can eat, listen to a live concert or get to the jazz music festival or film screening.

Another attraction of Lviv is its cafes and restaurants. The most famous and popular with tourists are such institutions:
