Lviv Oblast travel guide

4.3
Landmarks · Specialty Museums · Cemeteries
Home to forested mountains, ancient monasteries, imposing castles, and what is arguably Ukraine's most charming city, Lviv Oblast offers a wealth of varied and beautiful places to visit. The region is noticeably more tourist-oriented than the rest of the country, particularly within the city of Lviv. The regional capital managed to survive Soviet rule largely unscathed by harsh Stalinist architecture and boasts a World Heritage Site city center, cobbled streets, and colorful buildings. Make sure to allow time in your itinerary for a leisurely cup of coffee; the inhabitants of Lviv are famous for their love of the caffeinated beverage.
