    Breath-taking old church. Definitely worth visiting. It will take you ca. 15 minutes to reach there on foot from the Old Town.  more »

    This is an important place for the Ukrainians. For poles it worth a visit because of the unique architecture. Located on a hill sacred object looks very well. The Interior of the more modest but as it is in the area it's still worth a look.

Where to stay in Lviv

Although many visitors to Lviv stay near the relatively expensive town center, the city offers plenty of budget-friendly options within walking distance of this central district. Guesthouses and small hostels provide simple but tidy rooms with luggage storage and free Wi-Fi. Alternatively, look for mid-range hotels near public bus stops, where you'll have quick access to the major sights at considerably less cost than the centrally located boutique hotels.
