The best FREE view of Lviv, its a bit of a walk, so best to take your time with the 300 steps between levels, yes there are several levels, but it can be done. Don't go on a wet day as there in no protection...More

This is a popular climb for locals, especially at the weekend. The lower part of the park is muddy so not one for your best shoes - the stairs up are also a mixture of metal (slightly rickety to say the least) and broken stone!...More

Here is biggest peak on Lviv. So you can go there a bit hard because there is top! I have to say you should go there when the weather is sunny. because you can see clearly.

Busy at the top but nice views and worth the walk. Take some water in summer. Not for those who struggle physically

A bit of a climb, up stairs and paths but worth it for the views of Lviv. Not much to see of the castle! Lots of wildlife and birds in the woods enroute!

This place has an interesting view of Lviv. You can reach the top by stairs. Probably it takes about 20 min.

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
