Had a short trip to this town and decided to pay a visit there. Old cities are picturesque and provide you city's real flavor. Unfortunately, what I saw was a mere resemblance of Warsaw within a rainy context. When expectations raise the bar then you get easily disappointed.

Many old buildings are churches are to be found in this small area and the houses near the Market Square while covering a couple of centuries all blend in together.

We took the trolley for a tour of the city and it was very nice. We walked in a couple of the churches and it was very nice to see the architecture and cobblestone streets.

Strolling around the Old Town is something my wife, friends and I enjoy a lot. Old Town is basically the reason why we come here again and again. Lviv managed to preserve the continuity between the past and the present, which is largely missing in most of Ukraine in the aftermath of the World War II and the Soviet era.

The Lviv old town itself is an amazing place to walk around, add to that the decorations of Christmas just makes it even more pleasant and lovely. The old town is full of rich culture, there you can find most of the famous museums, restaurants, cafes & old cathedrals.
