  • Let’s listen to the streets and houses, let’s stop and hear the play of a violinist on a square among the buildings.

    Let’s steal an hour or two to attend concert, play or exhibition. Let’s discern the messages of our ancestors on the facades of the buildings, let’s look back at the history and think of tomorrow. Streets, buildings and castles talk, so let’s listen...
    In 2006 Lviv celebrated it’s 750th anniversary. Though Lviv might appear tranquil, it has been a center of activity throughout its entire history.
    To experience Lviv is to:
    - stroll along the picturesque Rynok Square, have a cup of coffe while watching the relaxed yet vivacious ambience of this Western Ukraine capital...
    - have a peek into one of the many museums and art galleries...
    - ascend the nearby Carpathian Mountians and fill your lungs with fresh forest air...
    To walk through the town of Lviv is to walk through time. Near one millennium of history has been chiseled into the countenance and way of life of this one of the most ancient Uktainian towns.
