A must

It is a bit of a long walk up to the high castle but trust me the view from up there of the city is worth every step. It is very romantic place to go to at night.

This city park is amazing. It is located in the center, so you definitely will not miss it. But be prepared to walk uphill. The view from the top is breathtaking. While climbing to the top you can see the old castle wall that still stands.

My recomendation is to visit the High Castle for the beginning of acquaintance of Lviv if the weather is good. You would go up and up to the small mountain, have a look around Lviv.

This is the highest point of Lviv, providing the breathtaking panoramic view of the city. But to see this view you have to climb about 250 stairs and this is only a half way to the top. But the view from the top is worth all this climbing.

This is highest vista point in Lviv. Nice view on the city. There is NO CASTLE. Just a wall of 15 meters.

Stairs, stairs, stairs... And more stairs... Luckily in the middle of the "stairs" you can buy warm vine :) The reward is beautiful panorama of Lviv. Worth to climb all this stairs.
