Lviv High Castle, Lviv

(3.7/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
Once the site of the city's most important defensive structure, Lviv High Castle features a hill with a viewing platform that affords sweeping views over the historical city's core. Find the metal steps leading up the hill to make your way to the top of Lviv's highest point. Although you won't see many traces of the medieval-era castle itself, the spot still represents one of the most historically vital places in town. Keep in mind that hiking up the entire way can be a little taxing, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes and plan to take advantage of the benches placed along the way. Put Lviv High Castle into our Lviv itinerary maker to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Lviv.

  • We went on a bus together from the ground up tour. After a nice, long walk until they expire, we reached the Hill after whirling:) The whole city was in a top location, overlooking the photo.

  • And yet again, how many times was raised through the times. All interesting and in the warmer months, it is convenient to make a few good shots. Who was not worth a visit. On the way up is also a nice Park, very romantic for couples.
