Instead of Soviet buildings typical of Ukraine, Lviv boasts a charming Central European-style old town with World Heritage Site status.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Church of the Jesuits and Church of Sts. Olha and Elizabeth. Museum-lovers will get to explore Pidhirtsi Castle and Lychakiv Cemetery. Explore Lviv's surroundings by going to State Historical and Cultural Reserve Tustan (in Urych), Olesko Castle (in Olesko) and Roman CatholicChurch of the Exaltation of St. Joseph (in Pidhirtsi). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Church of St. Andrew, visit Old Town, appreciate the history behind Monument to Ivan Pidkova, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas.
