Lviv city council, Lviv

4.7
Built in 1835, Lviv city council boasts a classical Viennese architectural style, with a yellow and white facade and a clock with bells at the top. You can climb its 350 stairs to one of the most well-known observation platforms in the area. Standing 65 m (213 ft) tall, the tower stems from others, the first one being a wooden town hall from 1357. The city council works on the premises, but you're free to tour the interior. Look for vivid stained-glass windows and inspect the intricate antique clockwork.

  • A small fee to pay to get to the spectacular views of Lviv. A small fee to pay but well worth it. Expect some stair climbing though. The interior has a few areas that are of interest which can be considered rest stops on the way up!
  • 30 Hryvnia to go to the top. Expect a lengthy climb, but it's not that bad. Once you are at the top, you'll enjoy some of the best views of Lviv. It really is amazing. However, expect a loud noise from the bells. Try not to get startled.
  • The walk up feels long the first time you do it, but if you have an expectation of how far it is, you don't really think of it as far. The view is delightful, just beware the bell which strikes every 15 minutes.
  • Climbing upstairs is a bit challenging but the view is well worth the effort!
  • Great view from the top of the building. There's no lift so you have to walk. :)

Where to stay in Lviv

Although many visitors to Lviv stay near the relatively expensive town center, the city offers plenty of budget-friendly options within walking distance of this central district. Guesthouses and small hostels provide simple but tidy rooms with luggage storage and free Wi-Fi. Alternatively, look for mid-range hotels near public bus stops, where you'll have quick access to the major sights at considerably less cost than the centrally located boutique hotels.
