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.

This high-hill view can be compared only to the ones from Prague, Budapest and Lyon - which is the best recommendation itself.

It's a climb.. but a mighty view over the city! It's close to the old centre too.. So worth to visit this before you go for the chocolate factory.

You have to be in shape to get to climb for the view but if you can it is a beautiful sight to observe.

Wherever your travels take you in Lviv, definitely plan on visiting the High Castle. It's a bit of a hike via metal and concrete stairs in a winding manner but really worth doing the climb to see Lviv in a panoramic fashion.

It’s definitely worth a hike up the hill to get a view of Lviv! I thought the park was very pretty and the hill allowed a 360-degree view of the city.

A great view of the whole city, definitely worth a visit if you don't mind walking up the stairs (quite many but i'm sure most people can manage them if going at their own pace). We went up here in quiet time of the day...More
