well, maybe i shouldnt spoile the moment of revelation but i will :) apparently there's no Castle at all :/ only some not very pretty restaurant on the hill in the park with its name. But dont miss the opportunity to see all those bright colors and all the beauty of Lviv from above. The park is really pretty with... More

The view is the reason to get there but it is reaally not that good, better is from city council tower. And it is really hard to climb there. Remember that there is no castle there just some ruins

If your answer is "Yes" than you can go for that little challenge in Lviv. Take a couple of sandwiches and a bottle of water for refreshment. I bet you will enjoy live once you get on the top ! There are an excellent point of view and benches to rest. The Castle itself has been ruined centuries ago and... More

Do not climb on the steep hill if you expect to find a castle as no one exists anymore! However, the bright 360 degrees view over Kiev and around is well worth the climb by good weather. On the main way up, before the steep climb a lady sells HUGE so-called "hamburgers" (looking more like hotdogs actually...) very rich and... More

There is actually no castle there. Quite a nice view on the city from the hill. Nice walk in the park. But not really a sightseeing place (please forgive me my straightforwardness), just cruising the old streets of Lviv was more interesting to me personally.

The idea of visiting High Castle Park was appealing until we arrive and I found out it was a long journey up hill. Thankfully there were stairs, and paved trails. So I am with a young family with a child a few months old. They left me in their dust so to speak but eventually I made it to the... More

Visited June 2013: Don't get your hopes up for seeing a medieval-era castle. In fact, a castle once stood upon this very hilltop as a lookout for danger over seven centuries ago. However, after being ransacked so many times, the High Castle has since been destroyed, and now only observation deck remains along with a large Ukrainian flag that flies... More

In any day and any weather it is very interesting to visit High Castle. When it is sunny day you can see the whole city and it's greatnes and beauty. When it is foggy - you feel the mystery of the city.

Its a 20-30 minutes walk from the centre to the top of the hill. Nice park, good 360 view over Lviv.

There are 2 ways to get up here, both involve walking, but one is much less. If you have access to a car you can drive right up to the stairs. It you don't have access to a car then you have to walk up twice as many stairs. Please realize that is better in summer than in winter for... More
