It only depends on language of topic (Internatonal forums use English language). And for me it's Львів, but like a Lwów, it's not an English.

А що, хтось тут б'ється? Навпаки, це спроба навести порядок в найменуваннях.

1. Take numerous photos of garbidge or anything run down - to prove the city is unkept by Ukrainians (as oppose to, ofcourse to the time it was in Polish hands). You can find garbadge in any city if you want to find it, during my trip to Warsaw I saw tons of it too, but who would bother with pics of that?

2. Purposely use old Polish street names from 1930's. I wonder how residents of Warsaw would react if I used old Nazi names for their town.

3. Cry about "so called polish culture", despite the city founded by Ukrainian king and built by German-Italian architects. Most of modern Lviv was built during Austrian times, when such think as Poland did not exist. I hope the polish members grow up and stop with this childish nonsence of prooving everyone their "polishness".

1. The Poles do not take pictures of garbidge. The run-down buildings are ubiquitous in Lwów so when such a photo appears, it doesn't meen it's done on purpose (e.g. to be offensive towards the Ukrainians).

2. Why should I name Lwów's streets in Ukrainian when the Polish equivalents exist? It was a Polish city and I can't really understand your example of German names in Warsaw which was OCCUPIED by the Nazis. Lwów wasn't occupied by the Poles. The Polish names are just historical curiosity for us. Nothing abusive.

3. Ukrainian king? It's a new example of your national propaganda? And the fact is that the POLISH owners usually paid for the tenements built in the city and the Polish architects were committed as well. So, it's a part of Polish cultural richness. Try to use that potential cause Lwów is now (and always will be) in your hands.

Would you please change the f__king name to Lviv in respect of Ukraine and stop this childish nonsense. We know about the history of Lwow and its Polish history, but that's history and now its Ukrainian. Why was this thread revived in the first place. Would rather look at nice pics of Lviv/Lwow than talk historic bullshit thanks.

No reason we couldn't have a Lwow thread under Polish site. Not sure how to change thread name actually maybe a moderator could do that.

Hah, good idea. I'll even take it a step further and use the contrived Latin name for this city: Leopolis.

The ethnic sniping in this thread is beyond petty and seems to be representative of some people's own deep insecurity issues. Let's just accept the fact that Leopolis sits in a region that had constantly experienced shifting borders and political alignments over the past few centuries. As a result, this city should be celebrated as a patchwork of multi-ethnic greatness and achievement.

Politically, the region's longest tenure was under Polish jurisdiction, from 1349-1772, with the latter portion being under dominion of the great realm known as the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

Architecturally, most of the older buildings we see in the city today were developed during the Imperial Austrian period.

Ethnically, the board really got reshuffled when the Soviet Union took possession of this region immediately after WWII. A lot of ethnic Russians were moved into the city (as with so many other parts of the USSR), after the Soviets deported the Polish majority en-masse. the over the years the rural Ukrainian population that had been native to this region for many many centuries gradually moved into the city and that culture defines the city of Lviv we see today.

So yeah, what we have today is a Ukrainian city with a rich architectural heritage that reflects the complex historical trends, ethnic shifts, and political changes that took place in such a fascinating part of Europe.

Having said all of that, I'd love to see more pictures of this beautiful city
