About Lviv

Including tips for the best time to visit Lviv

Lviv is the largest city in western Ukraine and was founded in the 13th century. Ruled by various countries in the past, Lviv is a landscape painted by the traditions of the nations that ruled the city during different time periods. Today, Lviv is the official cultural capital of Ukraine.

Lviv National Academic Opera House and Ballet Theatre is an opera house located in the central square of the city. You'll get to see various architectural features on the façade – including multiple sculptural figures – and a trio of bronze winged statues. Bandinelli Palace, the 16th century home of a sculptor, is a late Renaissance townhouse that was used as a post office. Designed using various styles, Kornyakt Palace is a fine example of Ukranian architecture. This palace houses paintings, mosaics and furniture belonging to the 19th century. Kornyakt Palace is best known for its Italian courtyard which, as the name suggests, is reminiscent of the typical courtyards in Rome and Florence.

The Armenian Cathedral in Lviv was founded by an Armenian merchant. The oldest part of this cathedral preserves Renaissance arcades and columns. The interior is decorated with colourful wall paintings, vibrant frescoes and marble arches. The Bernardine Cathedral and Monastery is another place of interest in Lviv. Its façade is adorned with statues of the sacred order of Bernardine and the images of Jesus and Mary.

City is full of history.

City is full of history. Its center is like both Vienna and Warsaw old town. If you are keen on architecture, atmosphere of the old cities this is the right place to visit. Local food is amazing. There is a variety of cafes and restaurants in the center. They offer both local and European food. If you are into the local stuff visit Borsch cafe for a good bowl of local soup. There are lots of bars with local spirits to chill in the evening. Lviv's beer also deserves attention. Lviv is a place where you could just randomly walk through the streets and enjoy Austro-Hungarian architecture non-stop.

A wonderful melange of Austrian imperial architecture and remnants of the soviet era, cobble stoned streets lined with old trees, and huge well kept parks. Seen from a vantage point, a forest with houses in it. A walkable city with super cheap public transport. Tons of places to eat well on a budget. I love that place.

A beautiful city, great for strolling and easy to navigate. Good selection of tourist bars in the centre of town, but easy to find places off the main track, the Krakivsky Market is well worth a visit
