The best panarama of Lviv.

The best panarama of Lviv. The best time - sunset! ) (morning, evening). If sunny weather, don't go there at midday (you'll have problem with selfie and awesome picture))

The view from up the castle is not very photogenic, and not really worth the sweat of the walk up the hill. The walk and climbup the hill especialky for elder people is not adequate

It wasn't much of a castle but the view was good. Many people selling things along the way. I got a cool necklace out of it. The walk is fine. It was an okay place but the history of it made it seem cooler to be there. It was kinda crowded on a Saturday.

It seems I am asked by friends traveling to L'viv to join them on their trek to High Castle and without wanting to spoil their fun we walk to the top and they say, "That was it?" Yep, great view, but nothing else. If you want to walk, see the city from a hill, snap a few photos then this... More

The best way to go there by foot is Rd Vul. M. Kryvonosa- Vul. Kniazha, then you will find the staircases up to the hill. If you go along the staircase without take shot cut, you will find part of the South Wall of High Castle which is built in the 13th century ( it stands in ruins now) on... More

I went there without knowing anything about the place. Walked all the way up, and found out there's not many things to see besides the incredible 360 panoramic view of the city.

It is a long walk uphill from the city centre and the view from the top is not that brilliant. On the day we did it the temperature was in the low 30 s and air pollution was quite bad. However if you have an hour or two to spare do it. At least then you have earned the evenings... More

The rise of the mountain is not simple - it is a fact, but it's worth. Went steps with the children. All excited)))
