Lviv theater of opera and ballet. Ukraine.

Lviv and Lviv Region

You’ve been to Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, and you think you know everything about the country? That is not true, since one can’t really understand this country without visiting Lviv (Lemberg, in the days of Austro-Hungarian Empire), Ukraine’s “secret western capital”. The Lion City (the translation of the town’s name) is just an hour by plane from Vienna or berlin. The lion is held in high respect in Lviv. Sculptures of hundreds of lions will greet you in Lviv. Lviv is a very poetic city steeped in legends both ancient and relatively new! Narrow medieval streets paved with stones, architectural decoration done in different styles — all that is preserved in its original form. Thus, it is no wonder that the central part of the city is included in the UNESCO’s World Heritage List.

You can admire monuments of different eras created by way of combining numerous national cultural traditions in this open-air museum for hours. The city’s unique bohemian aura seems to magnetically attract unconventional people. There were many geniuses among them: The Polish poet Adam Mitskevich, Ukrainian historian and philosopher Mykhailo Hrushevsky, the biologist and inventor of the typhus vaccine Rudolf Vigel, the author of classics of Jewish literature Sholom Aleikhem, the famous science fiction novelist of the 20th century Stanislav Lem and many others looked for inspiration for their creative and scientific work in Lviv. With a cup of fragrant Lviv coffee they were kissed by muses and became full of bright ideas. Perhaps you should try Lviv as well. Who knows? It could be that this old city may inspire you too.
