This high castle hill about 2km east from Rynok square is a good vantage point to see 360 degree view of Lviv town. However on top there is nothing to expect with only the Ukraine flag on top and little sitting space. Come around 5.30-6.00pm...More

We enjoyed our walk here, through the streets and up through the public gardens, However the views from the top were a little limited because of the large number of local school groups. We did pass one English couple, but kept stum as we overheard...More

It's quite an easy walk up, though may become challenging if you're hopelessly unfit. On the way there and back you pass some residential areas that are not a part of the famous touristy Lviv, which allows you to see the "real", local city.

It's not far away from city center. You can easily go there on foot. View is very nice and on top you can drink Kvas do drink which is amazing.

Really nice walk and well worth the view. Got to say though, can clearly see the smog over Lviv from that high though!

Even it takes about 10’ to get to the top the views are worth. I do recommend to go at noon when the sun it’s nearly down

We took a leisurely walk up to the observation platform. There were many groups there but everyone allowed others to take photos of the city. This is a must go spot

A hike through green trees and bushes to this place with nice views of city. Go early to avoid crowds

Nice hike up cobbles, stairs-- through parks to peak to view town & countryside. Bring water & sun screen.

Worth a climb to see that spectacular view of the entire city.Quite a climb but once you get there you can admire view of the churches and town hall.Going round you can see all sides of the city,not only the old town.
