Lviv has a never ending list of "firsts" in the Ukraine: the first university "Ivan Franko National University founded in 1661, the first brewery in 1715 making Bawar, Porter Imperial and Exportove, the first public theater in 1776 for opera, pantomime and ballet, the first hotel was built in 1785 and the list goes on. Lviv is also considered to be the birthplace of Polish sports, especially football and hockey. With those impressive achievements, no wonder Lviv is considered to be the Cultural Capital of the Ukraine. Its historical heart is on the UNESCO World Heritage List and monuments will jump out at you with every turn in the city.
Referred to as the "City of Lions", Lviv sits in Western Ukraine, close to the Polish border. Its architecture is a delightful mix of Central and Eastern European with Italian and German thrown in. It is the least Soviet city in style, with more of a European charm where green-domed churches and castles, cobblestoned streets, old-world coffeehouses and clattering trams reign.
You can enjoy sucking sublime hand made chocolate with quirky names such as "Kama Sutra" at the Chocolate Factory and dining at a restaurant where machine guns and automatic rifles are considered to be decor with dishes named "hacked to pieces" and "freaks with a gun". Do take in an opera at one of the most beautiful opera houses in Europe, the Lviv Opera and Ballet Theater, or take a walk to "High Castle" park that is the highest spot in town. Unfortunately you will have to climb 408 torturous steps to the top of the Lviv City Hall. The best thing to do is to hang out in one of the cozy cafes where the local brew is made by heating the coffee on hot sand.
