Excursion Activities

Lviv is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Strolling along Lviv’s narrow, winding streets, you may wonder that the city seems to be so ancient, seven hundred years old and yet, so very modern. You can also enjoy Lviv’s unique architecture, and listen to the never-ceasing hum that pervades the present-day city streets.

Lviv is the only city in Ukraine that was able to preserve the medieval structure of its central area. It has over 2,000 architectural monuments connected with the founding of the city, and the history of the country. Lviv’s uniqueness was officially recognized when UNESCO included the historical ensemble of the city center in its World Heritage List (December 10th, 1998 at the 22nd session of IKOMOS in Kyoto).

As you wander through the streets of Lviv, it is impossible not to fall in love with the unique and majestic beauty of the city. Each visitor, wherever he may come from, will feel something special in his heart and soul, and will want to return again and again to the city of Lviv.
