Tourism


To claim that Lviv is a tourist capital of Ukraine is not an overstatement. Everyday thousands of tourists from different parts of the world visit the city. Numerous guests are attracted by history and magnificent architecture, but not only by that. Unique spirit of the city, its Genius Loci is made of its intense artistic and cultural life, patriotism of the inhabitants and magic scent of coffee filling narrow Lviv streets from the cozy coffeehouses.

Today tourism becomes a strategic direction for city's development. Experts maintain that it has to become a priority for our city. The fact that Ukraine together with Poland will be hosts of Euro Cup 2012 only enhances the meaning of tourism to our city.

There are many tourist firms in the city which are eager and able to render their services to everyone willing to spend good time in Lviv and vicinity. Tourists are offered different thematic guided tours, visits to numerous museums, theatres, churches and other tourist sights. They can spend their time in parks, swimming pools and Aqua Park. Many restaurants and coffeehouses welcome tourists as well.
