A short summer break - we'll be back
Sep 2021

Lviv, is a human scale, beautiful, historic city of culture filled with helpful and friendly people.
It’s a city of churches, museums, historic buildings, cobbled streets, art, architecture, literature, bars and restaurants. It’s also a city of contrasts.
The first thing we noticed was how polite the drivers are: they give way to each other and always stop to let pedestrians cross the road; we thought that the penalty for failing to stop must be being forced to watch your car being crushed and then being burned alive at the stake. I don’t know if there is a penalty, they’re just polite and considerate. We saw very few police around anyway.
The streets are very clean, not a dropped cigarette butt, sweet wrapper, can or bottle; but we didn’t see any night life. Although the bars and are almost deserted by 10 and close at 11.
Most cars are gleaming and fairly new, we saw only about half a dozen motor bikes in our five days, and they too were gleaming, top of the range monsters. Most of the people are smartly and fashionably dressed too. But we saw a lot of beggars. The majority of the buildings in the centre are at least two hundred years old. We saw only one tower crane during our stay. Most of the buildings are beautiful and well maintained but between them there were many others with rotting timbers, crumbling rendering and graffiti covered walls. Many buildings, even those in very good condition, had incongruous, corrugated iron or rusting galvanised steel sheeting roofs.

Lviv's old town is one of the most charming old town's I've visited in Europe so far. It was bustling but not overwhelming or crowded, very lively, full of nice cafes, bars, restaurants, old churches, and small shops.

Lviv is a UNESCO heritage site and has such tremendous history. I have been there five times and have fallen in love with its old world charm. It should be on your bucketlist!

Amazing

Rynok Square is an amazing place, as well as all the streets that end there. The stunning views from the city council are worth the several hundreds of steps. L’viv is a delightful surprise.
