  • Highly important for each pole. Of course, the beautiful tombs, many prominent Poles there. Sad and very symbolic statue of Christ is reminiscent of sad times Soviet. Most captures heart of Lviv Eaglets ' cemetery with its tragic history-align with the Earth in the 1970s an unusual impression make rows of crosses with red and white bands. During your stay, a group of young people from the Polish odśpiewała the national anthem-it was a very touching moment. A must for every Pole-this older and this little ... The real lesson of patriotism.

  • 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.
  • Worth visiting if you have time in Lviv. There's a variety of languages and gravestone styles due to the fact that Lviv was part of multiple different countries throughout history. Don't miss the grave of Ivan Franko, the famous Ukrainian poet/writer.
  • Great place worth viiting. Entrace fee for adults - 25 UAH. Take some hot tea with you if you have a "thermos flask" and maybe some snacks as well. Walk around, sit on the benches, it's very calm and quiet there. Absolutely must thing to visit when you're in Lviv.
  • I'd like to get buried here in beautiful Lychakiv Cemetery.
  • Very interesting place and great exercise to go walking & exploring.
