The historical heritage of Lviv was formed under the influence of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the Austrian and Russian empires, since at different times the city was part of all these states. From an architectural point of view, Lviv is a real European city, especially since they hurried to get rid of the legacy of the Soviet era there already in the first years of Ukraine’s independence.
The city authorities are actively working on restoration projects, restoring historical buildings and developing infrastructure to attract as many tourists as possible. Therefore, Lviv is becoming more and more beautiful with each city. Its medieval churches, Baroque palaces and parks delight travelers. The rich collections of Lviv museums consist of priceless works of art, as well as unique handicrafts that tell about the difficult history of Western Ukraine.
