Lychakiv Cemetery, Lviv

4.7
Home to the graves of soldiers, famous figures, nobles, and a host of ornate tombs, Lychakiv Cemetery stands as one of Ukraine's largest necropolises. Visit the massive cemetery, with more than 400,000 graves, and explore its 86 different plots spread out over 42 hectares (104 acres). You can join a guided tour in order to see a selection of the most notable graves and figures laid to rest here. Don't miss seeing the plot dedicated to the "Defenders of Lwow," an ornate memorial commemorating the efforts of Lviv's young Polish defenders during the Polish-Ukrainian War from 1918 to 1919. If you want to use a camera in the cemetery, you'll need to pay a small fee. Before you visit Lviv, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.

  • A must visit while in the city. Some are the grave sites are pure art. It's a huge place we're you can spend a few hours taking in the atmosphere.
  • Is it very special and old cementary with a lot of old tombs for famous people. Every time I'm there it's like I'm not in Lviv) very quiet and calm please. If you are ok with going to the cemetery you should visit it. Once I have seen foxes there, but they are not dangerous, I have asked about it the watcher.
  • Uttermost interesting place where Polish and Ukrainian history blends together bringing you a glimpse of life in the past. Arrive at the main entrance at the tram station with the same name - get a ticket and a map, walk your way to the southeastern tip of the cemetary to see Polish War Memorial Cemetary.
  • wonderful old polish and ukrainian cementary
  • One of the must see places in Lviv. A park-like, huge area cemetery with beautiful architecture and special atmosphere. Around 400,000 burials are located in the cemetery, including those of prominent Ukrainian historical figures and soldiers of the recent wars. Reminds me very much of the Parisian Père Lachaise Cemetery. A couple of hours visit.
