Wonerful old European atmoshpere

The shops are quaint, a bit touristy (how many more sweatshirts do people need?) and fun. Some do not let you try things on, but most are friendly.

My slow and very tiny transport that I been squished on since the Czech Republic border stopped in Lviv, aka Lvov. The journey was uncomfortable, the school kids at various points made the noise level go through the roof, but the city made the trip worth-while.

Old city of Lviv its something that you admire and don't even notice it. I find it realy greate place to visit. You don't even need know the history of city (but it's better to know it) you can just walk through the streets. The most important is to feel special atmothphere of city.

Old part of Lviv is very beautiful with very old buildings and places. I saw both catholic church as well orthodox. You can buy coffee easily, because there are a lot of small and big coffee shops in the streets.

We went here after hearing about what was there on a private tour. So we had a better idea of the history, which made it more fun to wander about. Narrow streets, churches, shopping, restaurants, architecture. Lots to see here. Enjoyed it!

You cannot miss thid place as this is a must see in Lviv. You will understand why the city center is classified at the unesco world heritage. Look at every building to appreciate the architecture
