The old city of Lviv has something for every one. Aside from the plethora of bars, cafés, museums, and restaurants, the old city has an aura of romance that invites you walk slowly through the streets and soak in the feeling that major centres in Europe have forgotten. A review cannot do justice to the "feeling" the old city gives.

The old town has retained it's charm and character, lots of beautiful churches and architecture. It still has unique shops and restaurants/cafe. The people are friendly and helpful, many speak English and those who don't will try hard to help.

Every street has got something special. Eye catching architecture of the houses, many with a special soul: like King's House (Jan III Sobieski of Poland) with wonderful courtyard and interior like in a castle; Lubomirski House with a special coffee shop, Black House with Ukrainian Museum, Bandinelli House with a museum, old Apotheke with a museum even underground.

This was my first visit to Lviv, and the Old Town was great! Plenty to see and do, lots of historical attractions and street entertainers. We spent the weekend there and had a great time! Lots of cafes and restaurants, with just about anything you could imagine as far as cuisine and price ranges.

The Old Town is a pedestrianized area with cobbled streets on a grid pattern. They are many historic churches and other ancient buildings.
