Lviv Travel Guide

Lviv (Uk. Львів) or Lvov (Ru. Львов) is a city located in western Ukraine approximately 70km (44 miles) from the Polish border (see map). With a population of roughly 830,000 inhabitants, Lviv is the chief city of western Ukraine and a major center of transportation, industry, commerce, education and culture.

Founded in 1256, the city's strategic location between eastern and central Europe and between the Black and Baltic seas resulted in a history of extreme transitions as it passed from the hands of one great European power to the next. In a period of seven centuries the city was invaded by Poles, Austrians, Germans, Swedes, Russians, Tartars and Turks. Despite this fact, even with the absence of self rule, the city always remained an important center of Ukrainian culture and nationalism. Even today it is still considered to be one of the main centers of Ukrainian culture and much of the political class in Kiev originates from Lviv.

In spite of a turbulent history of war and being ceded from one empire to another, the city's history and architecture has prevailed relatively unscathed. Much of this is attributed to the fact that Lviv escaped serious destruction incurred by other great European cities during World War II. Today the city's center contains over 2000 buildings of major architectural achievement and is rightfully recognized on the UNESCO World Heritage List. With such an wealth of history it is very difficult to list every significant point of interest. There are so many!
