Go for a walk in Lviv, go on top of the hill for spectacular views and pretty pictures. You will find no castle but will get plenty of fresh air.

An excellent all round view of the surrounding area, this hill, which doesn't actually have a castle as such, does provide a great viewing opportunity. Getting tired climbing it all? Fear not. There's always a drinks and snacks stand close by on the route up!
