Lviv is a city of coffee and chocolate, a city of temples and monuments, a city of lions and books. However, it has long been one of the largest centers of trade in Eastern Europe. Europeans imported cloth, leather, silver and weapons for sale, while the Greeks and Armenians imported silk, oriental root and wine. "Merchants from Greece and Asia traded oriental fabrics and spices directly from their ships ...", which is a little believable, because now the river Poltva, which has been hidden under the streets of Lviv for several centuries. Even the name of the main square of Rynok Square is a prime example of the importance of trade in the lives of Lvivians for over a thousand years.

The market was not only an opportunity to sell or buy profitably, but to meet acquaintances, to talk, as well as to tell Ukrainians "Show yourself and see others", which actually meant "to follow the fashion", because every housewife learned about new clothes or showed her purchase on the market, or as they say in Ukraine at the "bazar".

For tourists, the market will be first and foremost an opportunity to see the life of the local population without decorations and curtains, to penetrate the everyday life of the city, to feel its sounds and smells. And of course to replenish the wardrobe, buy souvenirs, or products for home dinner.

That is why we have prepared for you the TOP markets of Lviv:
