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.

Ok, high castle is just a name of a park + a high hill, from where you can observe beautiful ancient Lviv with it's amazing architecture :) the only place that reminds of the high castle is an old ruined wall. Despite this small confusion, you will enjoy a lot climbing the hill, walking around the park ( free of... More

Just keep walking uphill; you'll get there. Take a camera and spend some time at the top, relishing the view that you've earned. There are no toilets around though, and make sure you take a bottle of juice or similar as you will get thirsty. Well worth the trip - it's a bit of a pilgrimage for the locals, and... More

The castle alone is very interesting as is the museum located within the castle walls. While I did not meet any American tourists, there were many visitors to the castle from other parts of the Ukraine. The castle is the crown jewel of this beautiful city.

I really enjoyed my trip to the L'viv, and I've seen virtually all of the important landmarks over the course of the past couple of days. I'm an educated and very very experienced traveler, and, the city is really worth visiting. That said I get the sense that a lot of these reviews are inauthentic, attempts by the local population...

Don't be fooled by the name it isn't a castle but it is a beautiful park with a tremendous view of the city. It's free and worth the walk up the hill just for the views.

Very romantic place: for tender kisses and amazing city view memories. You will never forget the sunset here. Hill named High Castle but you can find the castle here ;-) But there are Christ passion way to climb to the hill from the North side or snake-like way from the city center side. If you are going to enjoy of... More

There is only couple of stones left from castle but this place opens fantastic city view. Prepare useful shoes and good mood. On the top of the hill you will definitely meet couple of funny young companies. Try to get here during the night to see the best view but take local company and some light. In some places trail...
