Why climb the steps to see trees, and in between some of the city and its surroundings. But a lot of tourist to look on.

I and my friend are usually big fans of panoramic views, ready to climb steep hills or many steps for good photo opportunity. But the view on this hill is simply not worth it. Everything is overshadowed by trees and you can see very little. Also overcrowded with people from early morning.

Called the High Castle, this place of interest is just a pick in the centre, where a Castle was centuries ago. It's one of a few places in Lviv city centre where you could spend time actively. Watching around whole Lviv from the High Castle is magnificent

It is a hike up there if you choose not to drive but you will feel rewarded with a great view of the city. Can be windy so dress appropriately. A kiosk is on the way if you get thirsty or need a snack.

For a digestive walk after a nice lunch at one of lviv many venues it is great. It takes around 30-40 mn to walk there from the centre. U can visit saint Michael church on the way. And admire the gunpowder tower. Once at the forest path: play a game with children to distract them from the many steps ahead:... More
