  • 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
