Nice View Point but hard to climb. In the end of your hard climb you can see very nice scene. I advise you to visit this place at the sun-set

Have to say, after walking up the stairs the view better be worth it, is really a long way up, but luckily it didn't disappoint ! You have 360* view of the entire city which is gorgeous by the way

After some 15 min walk from Rynok Square and an easy hike at the Castle grounds, we were at the observation platform overlooking city center. Looking for a panoramic city view? Do the steep hike up the castle's stairway. Not interested in challenging hike? Do a walk in the park. Better even, tour the area by bike.

Good panorama but not the best in Lviv (one from City Tower is better). Take in mind that it is hard to go up there and it takes almost an hour from the centre.

There is no castle when you climb up the hill. But what you will find is a very nice view of Lviv. It is a steady uphill climb so come prepared with the right shoes.

Very long way up and view was not very different from the one from city hall. This hill is artificial. It was developed in memory of the previously located here castle. This was the most interesting fact for me

There is no castle but a pleasant and not too long walk up to the top of a hill where you have a nice view on Lviv.

Yes, I was expecting to see a castle there. No, the castle doesn't exist. although it did at some point. The highest point of Lviv is great at sunset. You can still see the whole city, yet the lights are starting to come on which turns into another beautiful sight. Walking up that hill also makes a great exercise so... More
