Lviv is one of the biggest cities in Western Ukraine, an administrative center of Lviv region, an old and amazing place; it attracts tourists not only from whole Ukraine but from many countries all over Europe and the world. Interesting culture and architecture mix, unique beauty and history of the city are probably the main reasons of its popularity. From the times of its foundation in 1256, Lviv has survived periods of Polish, Austrian, German and Russian rule, but the city managed to preserve its style and spirit. An ordinary walk around the city tends to be a breathtaking return in the history. There are several places in the city that any tourist cannot ignore while visiting Lviv.

Rynok Square is the oldest central part of the city, with ancient buildings that once belonged to wealthy noblemen, each with its unique history and architectural décor. The city hall with the clock tower and trumpet players informing Lviv citizens about the time is located in the middle of the square. There are four fountains with statures of Greek gods at four corners of the city hall.

Lviv Opera House is also called a diamond in the architecture of Lviv, a theater of magnificent beauty and impressing luxury. The building was constructed between 1900 and 1903. Famous and recognized painters, sculptors and architects of that time were involved in the erection process. To be able to finish the planned construction works, architects had to displace the riverbed of the Poltva River and even to hide it underground in the concrete pipe. Both interiors and exteriors of the theater are vastly decorated with different types of marble, stucco and gold.

Lviv has always played decisive role in the history of the region that is why most of the wealthy merchants and noblemen used to live here. Even after their death they wanted to stay noble and famous paying huge money for their future tombstones and crypts at the local Lychakiv Cemetery, which with the lapse of time was transformed into real open-air museum and is now considered to be one of the most beautiful cemetery museums. Today interments at the cemetery are prohibited and only the most honorable and devoted citizens could be buried here.

For centuries Lviv has been inhabited by many nations, each bringing its own traditions, architecture and religious beliefs into the history of the city. This is how Roman Catholic, Greek Catholic and Orthodox temples emerged in the city, all being now in the list of Lviv tourist attractions. Some of them dating back to 13th century are considered to be real masterpieces and are worth visiting.

Only few of the main Lviv places of interest were listed here but real Lviv has many other wonderful places for tourists to expose, everybody will find something special to admire during a trip to Lviv.
