  • Due to business trips, I'm in Lviv several times a year. Lychakiv cemetery I visited at any time of the year. I was lucky enough to be there on an extremely important for Catholic and for pole, 1 November. About the history, monuments, and other important information you will learn from the guides and the Internet, I only do I write that "spiritual" will remain unforgettable for me for the rest of his life. Cemeteries do not like, do not like the ceremony associated with the burial, but the Lychakiv is more than a cemetery. Is ... a place of silence, meditation and the moment of reflection on the continual haste, the race and the lack of peace and tranquillity in today's life.

  • Beautiful monuments, many artworks, stately Crypts, polustertye coats of arms and inscriptions, weeping angels, the age-old trees and silence.

  • 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
