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. With our international travel planner, Lviv attractions like Old Town can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.

  • very cosy place. cafes, restaurants and some bars are really nice. you can spend the day full of joy.  more »
  • Rynok Square is a beautiful square separate from the summer separate winter. This challenge, which welcomes you in winter, with its white, art-smelling streets and structures, is almost like a botanical garden. It is the most private city I have visited in Lviv along with the arts of street performers.
