- one of the best-preserved defensive structures in Lviv

- public art space, with a small coffee shop
And now, let's add some details.
Powder Tower, or as it is also called, the Architect's House or the building with lions, is in the centre, near the Arsenal and the Korniakt Tower. The Tower was also a place for storing gunpowder and grain, then the centre of architecture was organized here, and two sculptures of lions were installed at the entrance. Just imagine, made of white marble of the XIX century!
Today the Tower is the centre of the creative architectural community of Lviv and a cultural and artistic space.

Not the only coffee. You bet! One of the business cards of the city is beer. The oldest brewery in Ukraine is in Lviv. It all began in 1715 with a small brewery when Count Stanislaw Potocki granted Jesuit monks the right to build a brewery in the suburbs of Lviv. Since then, the "own and good" Lvivske beer has been brewed here.
Today, in addition to the brewery, there is an innovative museum of brewing history in Lviv.
The museum harmoniously combines impressive modern art and interesting beer history. What is the difference between Lager and Ale? What are the secrets of making "Lvivske", fermentation technology and malt taste? All this during a visit to Lviv Brewery.
We start with the history, then gradually about the modern process of brewing beer, and at the final stage - tasting. Among the novelties is an interactive room where you will plunge into the life of a beer.
Come in, be surprised and learn!
And all this is free with Lviv City Card.
