Lviv is a very beautiful city. It is a crossroads of different cultures, religions and architecture. Many different churches such as Orthodox, Creek-Catholic, Catholic, Armenian churches and synagogue are in Lviv. The Lviv Opera is brilliant. The university is interesting building. If you climb on Zamcova Gora you can see all old town.

Lviv is a marvelous city with traditional European architecture. Since it was part of both the Austro-Hungarian Empire and Poland for many years, it was spared the ordeal of having unappealing Soviet buildings. Old Town is a jewel in the heart of Lviv which truly gives one the feeling of what this city was like 100+ years ago. Lviv is... More

3rd trip to experience Lviv in winter. Great time walking, shopping, and enjoying the community in this center of the city. Music playing everywhere. Lights and a huge decorated tree in front of Opera House. A very relaxing and enjoyable safe way to spend time.

While being in Lviv, you will not feel any different than being in a typical, calm European city. Tiny streets and great people will definitely make your stay unforgettable. The Old Town of Lviv is a must place for visiting!

Nice old town , I like the atmosphere and people are mostly nice there too. There are many churches, museums and cafés there. But you need to be careful and wear flat shoes, because there are cobblestones everywhere.

We frequented many businesses around the town centre, including restaurants, bakeries and a local brewery - this is a great place to start any familiarisation with... More

By far, my favorite city to walk around in Europe. Little disturbed by the bombs of WWII, L'viv is a smorgasbord of several centuries of architecture. Visit the other cities of Europe if you must, but put L'viv in at least the top five.
