A Brief Introduction To Lviv.

Lviv is located roughly 70kms away from the border with Poland in Eastern Europe. It is the 7th most populous city in Ukraine. It is a city steeped in history and it was first founded in the 14th century as part of the Kingdom of Ruthenia.

The city then became a hub of commercial and political activity during the middle ages. You can see for yourself the physical reminders of this colorful history as you roam around the city.

Lviv offers visitors a wide range of landmarks, activities and great food to revel in, it is also a rather romantic city and many couples come here to enjoy the romantic ambiance and feel of the town. Although it doesn't have the high level of tourist numbers that some of the other cities do, such as Donetsk, Odessa and Kiev, (the Capital of Ukraine) which are better known, Lviv is well worth a visit.
