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.

  • Beautiful old town it is worth a trip. Everyone comes at his own expense. It is certainly much nicer although cold but in the spring

  • The historic city center-a place where you can walk for days. Open every day for something new. You can set aside time as regular walks and steps through all the many establishments that are there. I think that all might take an entire month:) Moreover, if you want to try everything. Sometimes buskers evening crowded and fun.
