LVIV – THE CITY OF COFFEE, CHOCOLATE, LIONS & JAZZ
Lviv is a city with a special atmosphere, which more than half a century was ruled by the kings. It is located in western Ukraine, around 70 kilometers from the border with Poland. Traces of its Polish and Austro-Hungarian heritage are evident in its architecture, which blends Central and Eastern European styles with those of Italy and Germany. In High Castle Park, the mountaintop ruins of a 14th-century castle provide panoramic views of the city’s green-domed churches and the surrounding hills.
Located on seven hills, like Rome, among the forests in a valley of Poltva River, Lviv has always been known for a great number of architectural and historical monuments. The heart of the city is Rynok Square, which has a 65-meter town hall. The observation deck was opened only in 2003. It`s open daily, that gives an opportunity to citizens and guests of the city both in the summer and in winter enjoy the beautiful view of the city.
Today Lviv is more than 760 years old and it has lots of stories to tell you!
