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.

  • From the Castle Hill there is a nice view of the Lviv region at any time of the day. Along the way there are cafes where you can sit down and have a cup of coffee.

  • High Castle serves as a viewing platform for visitors. To the top to get on a circular trail around Gori. Free version of Lviv ratusha.

  • Above the high Castle in Lviv points. Yes and no need to. Worth the climb from the street Kryvonosa, go slowly. On the road you can see the building of the Lviv television, remains of the Castle. Also trees climb proteins. In General, the living nature. The view from the highest point of chic in all directions. We were lucky with the weather: it was warm and very sunny. Lviv, namely its historical centre. Images look chic. Recommend time! P.s. come back better in the same way that and going, because there's a chance to get lost as it came out.
