The views of Lviv from the City Hall

At first glance, the tower of Lviv City Hall doesn’t look very promising in terms of city views it can offer.

But after you’ve climbed the tower (the height is 65 meters), you realize that it is worth it. Photos by horoshiyblog

Flying over the roofs of Lviv

Lviv is a beautiful city with a rich history, architecture and inexpressible atmosphere.

You can see the city from above from the tower of the town hall. However, it is much more interesting to fly over the city roofs.

Beautiful architecture of Lviv

The architecture of Lviv, almost not affected during the wars of the 20th century, reflects many European styles of different historical epochs.

After fires in 1527 and 1556, there are almost no traces of Gothic Lviv, but later epochs (Renaissance, Baroque, and Classicism) are well presented.

Miniature Fortresses Park in Lviv

Not so long ago, Lviv received a new attraction – a miniature park of castles and fortresses. In the park, you can find fortifications once located in the territory of the former Kievan Rus and Poland.

The architect of these unusual buildings is Lviv artist Igor Kachor. It is a kind of reconstruction in miniature (1:50 scale) of ancient castles, fortresses, and fortified churches which are either completely destroyed, in ruins, or need restoration. Photos by Andrew Zhdan

For many centuries Lviv pleases its residents and visitors with a unique aura of coffee and chocolate aroma. February 14-17, the Lviv Palace of Arts (Copernicus Street, 17) was hosting a delicious holiday – the 6th National Day of Chocolate.

The city invited everyone to taste the best sweets and a variety of chocolate candy. The festival once again broke the record for the number of kinds of chocolate and chocolate products presented.
