Lviv, Ukraine: Travel Guide

Lviv, Ukraine: Travel Guide



Why Go?

Unforgettable views of our city, it's architecture and European traditions have created a legendary Lviv. Modern Lviv is characterized by exquisite art, rich folk traditions, a mixture of many nations, warm hospitality, tourism services and business activity. More than fifty percent of all architectural monuments within Ukraine are located here in Lviv. The central part of the city is designated as a historical architectural reservation. Gray stones of Lviv reflect a diversity of styles, beginning with the 13th century. You may experience the feeling of the Middle Ages, Renaissance, Classicism and Secession periods. Our historic Lviv, known as the city of sleeping lions, went through numerous battles, invasions, fires and floods, and every time it was rebuilt with new attractiveness. People who have visited Lviv, always return. It may be that some magic power or extraordinary experience attract people to come back. Lviv the city speaks for itself better than what has been written about it. It's the museum-under-the-sky, where dreams are said to come true, where every street has a legend.

Because this is for English speaking members. In English, "Odin" reads as "oh-dyn", but "Odun" reads as "oh-duun".

The Ukrainian "И" is not the same as the English "U", it's closer to the English "I".

Thanks! I've seen that map before, and I absolutely love it. Thanks for reminding me about it, I will add it on the next update!

(BTW, I had to edit the picture to a link, so it doesn't stretch the window.)

I think it would also be a good idea to put a small pic for each place like for example Opera Theatre, so that people have a basic idea of what it looks like.

I kinda find that the Opera Theatre pic is over-used.
Why not use like some other pix.

Nice panorama, Sergei.

Jacek, they do have many Internet Cafes in Lviv, I'm sure you will easily find them. They have signs in the centre of the city.

Phrase Book - sounds like ukrainian language is more similar to polish than to russian...
...am I right??
I've heard that big part of Ukrainians communicate using russian instead of ukrainian - how is that exactly??
