  • Visited in spring, summer and winter, and every time it still cozy and beautiful. Feeling that in the cemetery are not. not running goosebumps and just ljubuesh'sja monuments. Each of them Carries its own history, its sense. get on a tour especially recommend to listen to some stories about the monuments.

  • Though the cemetery and not the best place for excursions with children we have not regretted that visited this place. Stunningly beautiful monuments, each with its own history. You can probably Caelian day walk and admire. Very central and clean. Despite the rain sawed trees and trash vivozili starie. Liked it, well worth a visit.

  • I don't understand why these do not make all cemeteries? In my opinion this is standard. All beautifully neat and diverse.

  • Really neat place. Took the golf cart tour and highly recommend it. Only in Ukranian though.
  • Great place to walk to and get a sense of the history of L'viv. Seems there were a lot of great people burried there.
  • Nice tombstones, quiet place. Entry costs one euro, video and taking video is charged with 30 euro Cent.
  • Worth visiting if you have time in Lviv. There's a variety of languages and gravestone styles due to the face that Lviv was part of multiple different countries throughout history. Don't miss the grave of Ivan Franko, the famous Ukrainian poet/writer.
  • Peaceful path through the history of the ancient city and it's people, with beautiful old sculptures and tombstones
