The city of Lviv
17 Apr 2015 | From Lidiya of Ukraine
Lviv is a city in Western Ukraine that used to be the Capital of East Galicia. It is the biggest city of the region and one of the main cultural centres of Ukraine.. Its historic city center is on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The city can be described as mysterious and architecturally lovely that exudes the same authentic Central European charm. The historical heart of Lviv with its old buildings and cobblestone streets has survived Soviet and German occupations during the Second World War largely unscathed.
Lviv's more Western European flavour has earned it the nickname the "Little Paris of Ukraine", and is famous for its distinctive green-domed churches and intricate architecture.
