::: Lviv ::: City in Ukraine :::

LVIV is a city in western Ukraine. Population is 760 thousand people. (Ukrainians 88%, Russians 9%, Poles 1%)
Lviv was founded in 1256 by Ruthenian (Ukrainian) King Danylo Halytskyi and named in honour of his son, Lev. The historical heart of Lviv with its old buildings and cobblestone roads has survived World War II and ensuing Soviet presence largely unscathed. Lviv belonged to the Crown of the Kingdom of Poland 1349–1772, the Austrian Empire 1772–1918 and the Second Polish Republic. Lviv history is as colorful and amazing as a city itself. It is filled with interesting events and outstanding figures. While being a part of different countries, Lviv borrowed some parts of culture, later on it transformed not only to an architectural gem, but also to the modern capital of scientific, spiritual and artistic life. On December 5, 1998, Lviv’s historic center was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List.
Lviv is an important education centre of Ukraine (59 higher education institutions,including 12 universities and 8 academies) and city is one of largest Ukraine's exporter of software, information technology.

Lviv also is known as a center of art, literature, music and theatre. Nowadays, the indisputable evidences of the city cultural richness is a big number of theaters, concert halls, creative unions, and also high number of many artistic activities. Temples, frescos, paintings, traditions, feasts, festivals – all these are the heirdom of the past and the product of the present geniuses, which can be felt only in Lviv...

The Lviv Theatre of Opera and Ballet is built in the classical tradition using forms and details of Renaissance and Baroque architecture, also known as the Viennese neo-Renaissance style. The stucco mouldings and oil paintings on the walls and ceilings of the multi-tiered auditorium and foyer give it a richly festive appearance. The Opera's imposing facade is opulently decorated with numerous niches, Corinthian columns, pilasters, balustrades, cornices, statues, reliefs and stucco garlands.
