Ratusha Tower and Lviv City Hall, Lviv
(4.8/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Built in 1835, Ratusha Tower and Lviv City Hall boasts a classical Viennese architectural style, with a yellow and white facade and a clock with bells at the top. You can climb its 350 stairs to one of the most well-known observation platforms in the area. Standing 65 m (213 ft) tall, the tower stems from others, the first one being a wooden town hall from 1357. The city council works on the premises, but you're free to tour the interior. Look for vivid stained-glass windows and inspect the intricate antique clockwork. Put Ratusha Tower and Lviv City Hall on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Lviv vacation trip planner.

  • In the middle of the central market square is the City Hall. Highly recommend everyone climb on top of her and uvidet'gorod with a height of 65 m, of course you can see it and from the observation deck of the high Castle, but climb the ancient steps and be at the heart of this is a completely different sensation! Climb-you will not regret. I advise to go up before the end of the next hour and hear the chime, right under the Bell. In 5:00 pm from the upper Windows of the town hall to alert residents about offensive Superstars of the next hour. Also around the hall full of different entertainment. Pleasant rest!

  • Filed under "must visit" great views of the old town of Lviv are very good (360) for photos against the backdrop of Lviv.

  • Many of course we dolgovato, but it was worth it! View from there. The price for entry is small, so definitely worth the climb at the Town Hall, if you in Lviv)

  • Great view from the top. Many many stairs, can be crowded. So crowded that there are traffic jams and gridlock on the tighter sections of the stairway. Maybe avoid if you are claustrophobic. :)
  • Great view from the top of the building. There's no lift so you have to walk. :)
  • Probably the best panorama you can find in the central city. Cheap to visit (veeeery cheap), and is located in the most central part of L'viv. Tip: take good and comfortable shoes, it's a long way up ;)
  • Delicious and fun.
  • The view from the top of the tower is worth the climb. There are several hundred steps, so be sure you are ready and healthy enough to make the climb, but it is worth the view on the top!
