Instead of Soviet buildings typical of Ukraine, Lviv boasts a charming Central European-style old town with World Heritage Site status.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lviv: Basilian Monastery and the Heart of Christ Church (in Zhovkva), Pidhirtsi Castle (in Pidhirtsi) and Church of Sts. Anna (in Boryslav). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Rynok Square, enjoy breathtaking views from Lviv High Castle, explore the different monuments and memorials at Lychakiv Cemetery, and delve into the mystery of Insomnia - The Haunted House.
