Culture


Lviv urban culture has been formed in the course of centuries and became one of Ukraine’s trademarks. Traditions of many nations have intersected here. Ukrainians, Poles, Jews, Armenians, Germans, Russians, Austrians and others created a unique Lviv flavour.

Lviv is well-known as the centre of artistic, music, literature and theatrical life. Numerous museums and galleries, theatres, concert halls, art groups and many cultural events held in the city support its status. Lviv inhabitants and guests have many opportunities to leave their everyday life behind and immerse themselves in the world of beauty.

Churches, frescoes, painting, traditions, holidays, festivals are both inherited from the past and created by the contemporary genius, which can be felt only in Lviv.
