One evening in Lviv after the rain

Lviv, an incredibly beautiful and atmospheric city, is pleasant to walk. It has the largest number of architectural monuments in Ukraine.

The special charm is to walk along the old streets in the evening, when the lights are lit. It looks as if you are in a fairy tale, or in the past. The streets are especially beautiful after the rain, when wet cobblestone looks awesome. Photos by: Nickolay Khoroshkov.

Just before the thunderstorm. In the distance you can see the lightning.

The first line of Dnepropetrovsk subway with 6 stations (7.1 km) was opened December 29, 1995. It was the first subway in the former Soviet Union opened after its collapse. Since then, the number of stations hasn’t changed.

Dnepropetrovsk subway is not a popular form of transport. The situation could be better if it reached at least the center of the city.

Let’s walk the streets of Mukachevo
