Lviv High Castle, Lviv
(3.7/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • In winter, you need to be especially careful about getting there. The castle itself is not there. But the road back to nature and views, is worth whatever time the attractions of the city.
