Your day in Lviv starts at the city’s historic centre, Ploshcha Rynok. This square is the main reason why Lviv’s historic centre was designated as a UNESCO site and it was greatly restored, after the fire that broke out during the 16th century. At its centre, the City Hall (Ratusha) dates back to the 19th century.
The Ploshcha Rynok square is surrounded by a collection of 40 buildings of great historical, cultural and artistic importance.
While you’re at the square, be sure to check out these two museums:
- The Lviv Art Gallery, housed in two different buildings. The Pototsky Palace boasts collections of European art from the 14th to the 18th century, while the other building at the Stefanyka street, housed collections of Polish and Russian art from the 19th and the 20th centuries.
- The Museum of History presents Lviv’s history from its early days to the 20th century, with special focus on the Ukrainian patriotic movement.
Continue your walk around the city and find the Lychakivske cemetery, founded in the 28th century by Emperor Josef II. The cemetery’s location is beautiful and peaceful – as is usual in places of this kind – and is full will the tombs of Ukraine’s most important personalities.
Complete your experience in Lviv in the Museum of National Folk Architecture and Rural Life. This open-air museum presents many aspects of the past’s everyday life, through collections of life-sized models of windmills, churches, farms, schools and distinctive examples of Lviv’s folk architecture.
