Think you’ve never heard of Lviv? Think again – it’s a city of many names. For Austrians it is known as Lemberg, after the city’s time as capital of Habsburg Galicia. For Polish people, looking back at his country’s long held sovereignty, it would be Lwow. In Yiddish dialect the name of the city sounds like Lemberik, and Leopol to the old-fashioned Frenchman.

But no matter what you call it, most likely, it’s not possible to encompass all the truly amazing things this city has seen in its adventurous past or offers at present. With its independent coffee houses and traditional chocolatiers, the Western Ukrainian city looks, smells, and tastes like the best of Europe. In fact, its many names reflect the city’s mysterious past, exciting present and bright future. The city of lions (yes, another name!) today remains one of the most charming, elegant and mysterious beauties of Eastern Europe. It is the only Ukrainian “Ensemble of the Historic Centre” included in the UNESCO World Heritage List.

Ukraine’s Hidden Treasure: Lviv

The city is known as a center of art, literature, music and theatre around the world. These days the indisputable evidences of the city’s cultural richness is the great number of theaters, concert halls, creative units and – last but not least – IT centers. Owing to an enriched cultural program and developed infrastructure (although a rather small town Lviv offers more than 8.000 hotel rooms, more than 700 caterings, free Wi-Fi zones in the city center, and a good connection to many countries of the world) some say Lviv has the biggest potential in Ukraine to grow and develop.

Lviv is a city that inspires people to create, motivates try something new, excites with a range of things it offers, impresses with its mysterious past, entertains with animated streets, charges with positive energy, but cannot leave you indifferent.
