Old Town, Lviv

(4.9/5 based on 800+ 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.
