Old Town, Lviv
(4.9/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Listed as a World Heritage Site, Old Town serves as a showcase for Lviv's rich mixture of architectural styles and cultural influences. Spread over 120 hectares (300 acres) in the city, the historical core encompasses the old medieval center and features a host of churches, homes, and cathedrals. Wander the narrow streets and admire the mix of Baroque, neoclassical, and eastern-style buildings, a tribute to Lviv's place at a geographical crossroads within Europe. You'll find a wide array of shops, cafes, and eateries throughout. Don't miss seeing the Dormition Church, one of the city's centerpieces and home to a 17th-century tower. Head to the top of the former castle hill to get a sweeping view over the historical city from the viewing platform. Put Old Town into our Lviv travel itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • I spent a great time in Lviv, rynok very nice, is a tourist city, fountain, internet, many many cafes. I recommend you visit the historic churches. Feel the atmosphere of the home Center with more accessible prices:) worth it!

  • In awe. All bad, like in a fairy tale. We strive to buildings, each with its own twist, numerous cathedrals, churches and monuments in the kazhlom step. Beautiful day, and especially in the evening. You can drive your miracle train with audioguide, you can walk or take a white carriage with horses. Nezabivaemoe the impression of walking in the TS-ch merger is accumulating and ringing bells. The cost of 200 or 300 UAH depending on the route for everyone. It's worth it.

  • Place mandatory for each pole. A piece of the history of the Republic. Each stone is a certificate of Polish history and culture. Dare to say that if the Center take Wawel is a Lviv beats it on the head.
