As many already said, very nice small city like Praga or Vienna completly different from Kiev. Old town with nice walking places good in spring and summer.

Oldest part of L'vov consider the center of the city specially around the street Svobody (freedom streat). Narrow and stony streets remind the old part of paris, very similiar but with different culture. If you are in L'vov. donot forget to be in the old city.

Lviv is a quaint city with picturesque buildings and architecture. I recommend some delicious Ukrainian food and a walk through the Old City with a camera in hand.

I Like everything but there are a little too many people that don't understand that Medical Tourist bring finances into the Country. The vast majority are polite, honest and helpful, but some: you go up to with a map in hand and ask them in my best Ukrainian and say. "Please help me I am lost" The totally ignore your... More

This is an amazingly beautiful city with lots of history and fun to be in. The coffee needs to be tasted all over and the strudel as well. ..very very reasonable.

The core of this beautiful city has it all. Especially with the recent currency devaluation, a vacation in L'viv will cost you likely a quarter at most of the cost to go to Prague. Amazing restaurants are typically 100 - 150 UAH per person (~ $10-15 USD) for three course dinners with wine. You would never know there was fighting... More

There are a lot of nice old towns all over the world. But the one from Lviv is one of the most impressive I have ever seen. Old "rotten" houses which are looking just like they should, beside renovated ones, colorfull, hidden places and restaurants, bars and artists (free ones and also from paid ones form the city). Beside this,... More

Lviv has the biggest amount of sights in Ukraine (2500) and the most beautiful of them are located in Old Town. It is kind of unique because there's no other place in world build like this and saved like this till nova days. That's why it is in the UNESCO list
