“Lots of features.”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

We didnt have much time in Lviv,so we took the little sightseeing train around the town,about an hour,but you see everything important.Apparently it does 10 km ,but with all the traffic its suprising! Headphones(extra) and choice of languages,although the speakers on the train make it hard to hear the headphones! Pretty good if you want to see the highlights of Lviv quickly.

“Visit UNESCO site!”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We have visited Lviv old city on Saturday and Sunday. Architectural harmomy, preserved atmosphere of the medieval Market Place, good coffee aroma, Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Greek Catholic, Armenian churchers, remnants of the famous synagogue Golden Rose...Live music and street dances in the evening...We did not expect Lviv to be so beautiful! Charming city, impressive monuments, rich museums' collections, excellent guides! I can recomend everybody to visit Lviv! Next year we are planning to visit Lviv with the group of our friends and our children.

“Continues to be Renovated - outstanding work so far!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Lviv's city center is vibrant, stunning to look at, and an oasis in a country that has many problems. People seem happier here, have smiles on their faces and are quite willing to help others. Coffee shops abound, as do pubs and restaurants. Best linen in Ukraine I will suggest can be found at the market or in a store nearby.

“Wonderful city”
Reviewed July 27, 2012

This city is a star of the Ukraine. The people are very nice and willing to assist lost tourists. There are a number of boutiques catering to a variety of wants and desires. There is even an armed guard restaurant in a cellar where only Ukrainians can go, no Russians. They will let a limited amount of Americans in, if you know the pass word. I can't tell you, you will have to find out for yourself. If you want to see a beautiful city, with prices that won't break the bank, this is the place. I loved this place.
