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...

One of "must to visit" places. No actual castle, some pieces of walls, the castle demolished long time ago. The highest place in the city, excellent panoramic view, surrounded by park, forest.

First of all, there is no any castle there any more! This is The Union of Lublin Mound 29m high on the top of the hill. There is an observation deck on the top at the altitude of 413m (Hill+Mound). While walking from the city square be prepared for 30min walking to the top. There is a great view over... More

I really liked the view which I saw when being on top of it. The castle hill is very green with trees, so even on a sunny day it is comfortable to climb it. The steps are handy, but it may be quite a challenge for elderly people or small children.

Just don't expect to find an actual castle there. It was destroyed centuries ago. What's there now is an open space with some benches, national flag, and - of course - a good view on the city. Although my vote is definitely for the view from the City Hall tower.

Huge tourist attraction in Lviv with a great view. If you don't get up on the high castle you must be high or something.
