History of Lvov has started here, unfortunately not much remained from those medieval times. I don't remember how many stairs you have to overcome but view from the hill is worth this effort. You can see whole town, but also geographical lands like Roztocze or Podole.

Nice hike when you get nice weather...maybe not much fun when it's "August" hot or January cold. Great views, relatively clean, and it wasn't crowded at 7 am when I went.

Good place for meetings of friends or couples an for walks. You can enjoy a magnificent view on the city from the very top of the hill. Not good for the disabled who can't get to the highest point but to the lower terraces only.

Here should be the last place to visit in lviv as you walk too much and there are a lot of stairs to reach to the top. However, the view is not good enough and you can not see anywhere clearly. Instead of going there, visit the tower of municipilaty building.

The maps and signs don't give you much idea of where you are going, but persevere, carry on going up, above the large radio mast, and you are rewarded with the fantastic views of the city that are promised.

This is the highest point in the city and well worth the climb up. Part of the way from the old city can be travelled by vehicle, but then many steps must be climbed to the summit. The 360 degree views of the city and beyond are fabulous. To be honest, I wasn't convinced it would be worth a visit... More

Lviv High Castle is the park on top of the hill, where the highest point of the city is located. From there, you can see Lviv in its beauty! There are remains of an old castle, from which the name of the place takes its origin.
