Once the site of the city's most important defensive structure, Lviv High Castle features a hill with a viewing platform that affords sweeping views over the historical city's core. Find the metal steps leading up the hill to make your way to the top of Lviv's highest point. Although you won't see many traces of the medieval-era castle itself, the spot still represents one of the most historically vital places in town. Keep in mind that hiking up the entire way can be a little taxing, so be sure to wear comfortable shoes and plan to take advantage of the benches placed along the way. Make Lviv High Castle part of your personalized Lviv itinerary using our Lviv online road trip planner.

  • Good place to see whole Lviv panoram. Way up is not too hard but still might be challenging for someone. Nevertheless the view worth it))) Typically it slightly more windy on the top comparing to the city center so account for that.
  • Very beautiful view! Be ready to sweat, because you need to climb up pretty high.
