Listed as a World Heritage Site, Old Town serves as a showcase for Lviv's rich mixture of architectural styles and cultural influences. Spread over 120 hectares (300 acres) in the city, the historical core encompasses the old medieval center and features a host of churches, homes, and cathedrals. Wander the narrow streets and admire the mix of Baroque, neoclassical, and eastern-style buildings, a tribute to Lviv's place at a geographical crossroads within Europe. You'll find a wide array of shops, cafes, and eateries throughout. Don't miss seeing the Dormition Church, one of the city's centerpieces and home to a 17th-century tower. Head to the top of the former castle hill to get a sweeping view over the historical city from the viewing platform. Make Old Town a part of your Lviv vacation plans using our Lviv trip maker site.
