You touch a different era when you walk the old town of beautiful Lviv and history touches you. I loved the Old Baroque style buildings, the climbs up centuries old church towers; the Cafe-laden square and the slower pace of a people blessed to live in Lviv. You must visit for a day or two if you enjoy European culture... More

The square was tarted up for the European Soccer Cup and has a little of the feel of a Disney creation. Young girls in hoop skirts parade selling candies; train ride for the kids and their parents on tour. All the medieval architecture has been cleaned (at least the fronts!) and the entire square is cobblestones. Lovely walk with outdoor... More

Arrived in Lviv on a beautiful June afternoon, and after dropping my things off at the Hotel Atlas (see separate revoew) walked down to the center of the city. Lviv has heart and soul. The city center and market square are colorful and full of cafes and coffee houses. I have yet to return to specific sites, but the city... More

Lviv has been ruled by several different regimes over the last 200 years. However the most lasting influence has been from the Polish rulers during the early 1900. They built the Old Town of Lviv and the buildings are much more European than in other cities in central and eastern Ukraine. Fortunately many of the buildings are in good condition... More

Quaint, beautiful, stunning, delicious. A wonderful place to stroll, shop, eat, drink, relax. Take as much time as you ca, then go back for more. Next time we'll spend two days, visiting more shops, eating more. Very affordable!
