Ukrainian Folk/Rock/Pop/Jazz Music

by matcrazy1

Time to prepare my shopping list for Lviv!

I have adopted the habit to bring some music CDs from my travels - some folk music but mainly contemporary rock/pop/jazz music sung in the local language. However, shopping for music means you have to know which names of bands and singers to look for. I usually prepare with the help of Youtube and make a list of those whose music I like, but that also requires knowing some names to start with.

So - I hope for some recommendations of good bands and singers from Ukraine. Please let me know your favourites.
My musical taste: rock ballads, 'soft' jazz, melodic pop. No techno, no hip-hop, no heavy metal. I prefer singers, no matter if male or female, who have strong voices and a good singing technique - I dislike girly whispers and half-spoken 'singing'.

Question 2: Where can I find a well-assorted CD shop in Lviv?

Last summer I found a little music store located opposite to Grand Hotel.

The CD shop where I shopped was in the same street as the Bistro Pizza Jazz. Coming from the center it was a bit further towards the cemetery on the left side. I know it's pretty vague but that's the only one I remember in Lviv.

LOL - the question sounds oddly familiar, except for the location. ;-)

Boombox (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MBkfaAQB6I&feature=related)

Krykhitka Tsakhes (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gS9f1xpkZog)

it's not exactly rock ballads, 'soft' jazz, melodic pop but I suggest you listen to it and make your judgement ;)

i think some of them you can find in Lviv in kryharnya Yi (Prospekt Svobody 7)

Market Square

by HORSCHECK

The history of Lviv's Market Square (Ploshcha Rynok) dates back to the 14th century.

The town hall stands in the middle of the square and it is surrounded by about 44 burgher houses of various architectural styles, each of them has its own story.

Please read my "Things to do" tips for more information about some of the buildings.

The Market Square was always the centre of the town, therefore it has seen many historic events from arrivals of dukes and kings to executions of thieves and adulterers.

Four fountains with statues of Greek gods were erected in the corners of the square in the late 18th century.

Nowadays the Market Square is pedestrianised; only old trams rattle down the southern side.

THE LATIN CATHEDRAL

by LoriPori

The Archcathedral Basilica of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary or simply THE LATIN CATHEDRAL is located in Old Town, in the southwestern corner of Market Square - Ploshcha Rynok- at Ploshcha Katedralna 1.
The first church built on this site was a small wooden Roman Catholic Church, built in 1344 but lost in a fire six years later. In 1360, King Casimir III of Poland founded the present day church, built in Gothic style.
In the years 1761 - 1776 the cathedral was refurbished in Baroque style and a tall bell tower was added.

travel around by taxi, in...

by terryhot

travel around by taxi, in Lviv it is really inexpensive. The avarage trip (5-6 km) costs 1.50-2.00 USD. It's much better to order by phone, taxis in the streets charge more, and are sometimes dirty and in bad condition. Call the following numbers:

+380-322-393333
+380-322-395050

Assistance from Ukrainian speaking person is desired, since names of the streets are not very easy to pronounce for foreigners. You can also specify your preference as regards of car manufacturer.

Ploshad Ryinok. House of Massari

by bugulma

On Ploshad Ryinok, building 24, we see the house of Massari, built in XVI century. Here Peter I the Great lived as a guest during his visit to Lviv in 1707. The legend says that the house had a weathercock with lion figure and it felled every time before accidents. Last one it was in 1825 when Ratusa fell down. Since then the weathercock didn’t place on the same time and now it is kept in the city museum.
