Lviv High Castle, Lviv

3.7
#2 of 15 in Historic Sites in Lviv
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.

  • High Castle is fairly close to the market and is a great stepping stone from the noise and crowds of the Centre of Lviv. We do not find here what true too many remnants of fortifications, is a reward for a short, but pretty intense climbing the steep alleys and stairs is a wonderful panorama on all parts of the city. In the middle of the road is quite a few benches and a few smaller points where you can buy drinks, ice cream and other snacks.

  • Very similar to prague .but undiscovered as yet .Well worth a visit A bit of a track if you go by train  more »
  • The high Castle is not only the highest mountain in Lviv, it is also a wonderful park with the ruins of the Castle, and an observation deck, where you can admire the stunning scenery around the Lviv from which grasps spirit. On the way up/down you can take coffee, magnets and have time to get your portrait for 5 minutes. From young children to the observation deck can be hard to rise (there are many steep steps).

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.
