Wondering around the City Hall

Very pleasant atmosphere. Good looking, well kept buildings. As it usually happens in such a turistic places - you might experience some extraordinary street performances.

The Old Town is full of real gems of architecture. You can find all possible styles, from Gothic, Armenian, baroque churches to great examples of the Viennese Secession and Neoclassicism. Fantastic!

The old town is beautiful. Many apartment buildings have yet signs of Polish culture presence in this city for 500 years, despite attempts to erase these traces. Lwow was established by Polish King in XIV Century.

The architecture in Old Town is stunning. I would much rather enjoy the architecture here than say Prague or other over-touristy cities in Europe.

There were lots of sights and things to do in Lviv. We went to an Opera and took in a concert as well. Each were unbelievably inexpensive. There are many old buildings such as a pharmacy, museums and palaces with a lot of art.

This is the meeting point between historical beauty and modern comfort with the smell of coffee and chocolate! Highly recommended to climb the Town Hall!

The old town in Lviv is getting more and more renovated, new shops and very interesting restaurant concepts are opening there. It is a car free zone and very interesting to stroll along and seeing the old buildings. In the summer a great place to relax in one of the many terraces for a drink or two.
