Visited through a bus tour. It was worth it. The tour chose certain sights in the cemetery, but a person could spend a whole day checking out sights and the history they represent.

Lychakiv Cemetery is a State History and Culture Museum-Preserve. The cemetery is so large, you will need 4-6 hours to explore. A beautiful veterans section. The monuments and tombstones are astonishing- beautiful sculptures.

Our family never thought visiting a cemetery would be a highlight. We were wrong. The cemetery is simply amazing. We did hire a private tour guide and it was well worth it. I would highly recommend a visit.
