  • I think we missed the cultural significance. There is a male and female lion in the middle of the road. They are golden. Maybe just see them as you drive past?  more »
  • Lions are very beautiful in the evenings about them selling baby toys. Around Lviv roundabout, turns worth police. Near ochheuteal beach is with the Lions.

  • The lion statues are nice but not really impressive. They are not very detailed though it's clear we're looking at a male and female lion. At night more impressive thanks to the lighting. Would be nice to know why the male lion had a ball or pearl in his mouth.
  • The Lions are kinda funny. They are roped off so can't get close funny pics. Not a major attraction but cute.
  • The most well known landmark.. for foreigner there always police in this area.. they will caught you even when you not do anything wrong and ask for money. A streetfood near this area open in the evening and close in midnight.
  • Golden Lions is now well decorated. It seems nicer than I saw in 2012.
  • It is just a roundabout, but fun to watch the local people doing tricks with fotball. I spendt 5 minutes here.
