Landmark Tourist Spot
Lined with historical buildings and replete with shops and restaurants, Market Square has long served as the commercial and social heart of Lviv's old town. Stroll the cobbled plaza, planned and constructed in the 14th century, and admire the mix of Baroque, Rococo, and Renaissance architecture that characterizes the merchant homes surrounding it. Grab a Ukrainian-themed souvenir at one of the many gift stands and stores in the area, or simply rest at one of the cafes and watch the square bustle with activity.

Where to stay in Lviv

Although many visitors to Lviv stay near the relatively expensive town center, the city offers plenty of budget-friendly options within walking distance of this central district. Guesthouses and small hostels provide simple but tidy rooms with luggage storage and free Wi-Fi. Alternatively, look for mid-range hotels near public bus stops, where you'll have quick access to the major sights at considerably less cost than the centrally located boutique hotels.
