Enjoyed the walk up here, especially amongst the autumn colours. Very peaceful, despite the number of people making the trek. Views are ok and are better from the city hall tower, but a lovely experience all the same.

Actually, there is no castle at all but very beautiful park and interesting building reminding tower or something like that. I recommend this place because I have never been in similar places, and you can find beautiful panoramic views there. But be ready to go...More

Only costs 40 grivna (€1.50) but you have to walk up a butt ton of stairs. A butt ton I tell you! The view is good, nothing special. There is no bathroom in the building.

You don't get that good of a view over lviv because there are trees in the way- you get a better view from the town hall tower. Otherwise, it is a nice walk up.

About a 25 minute uphill walk from Rynok Square. It wouldn't be easy if you have walking issues or are pushing a push chair. Wear trainers as it's mainly cobbles. A great view of Lviv and area from the top if not hazy. There is...More

This is a little way out of town - and for anyone with walking difficulties would be hard. However we walked there from the centre - views were lovely - see for miles, worth the trip.
