Need of a visa for Lviv

by Gwynfiguy

If you go through any part of Russia the enclave of Kaliningrad . You need a visa which can be very laborious to get .
I am not sure of my directions but If this is needed make sure that you get it before you go as there sre three pages of forms to fill in in triplicate.

Lviv is nowhere near Russia or the Kaliningrad enclave. Just a simple hop over the border from Poland and EU-passport holders and a few others don't need a visa. So you can easily join the post-Euromeet Krakow trip!

Liviv is in Ukraine but not in Russia. US citizens and EC citizens do not need a visa to enter Ukraine if the period of their stay does not exceed 90 days

Travel Tips for Lviv

Old Lviv

by Zo72

It is hard to believe how much history there is in Lviv. The old town is not like an ordinary town but more like fairy-tale town, open air museum, something from the past that miraculously lives today. Not surprisingly it was added to UNESCO World Heritage List in 1998.

The oldest part of the city, High Castle and its surroundings, is from 13th century. Middle Town around Rynok square was built just slightly later in 14th century and it still holds its original layout. The most astonishing thing about Lviv is diversity of its cultures, peoples that lived here, styles and countries that ruled it. Soon after its foundation, Lviv attracted people of mixed ethnicities who lived in separate parts of the town. Many communities lived here, Polish, Jewish, German, Ukrainian, Italian, Greek, Hungarian, Armenian,... and it is their rivalry that created this fascinanting mixture of styles. Although many buildings were renovated and rebuilt in new stiles through the history and new buildings were built it didn't damage the overal magic of the place.

In spite of that Lviv didn't escape hard times through the centuries. In 1527 the fire destroyed most of the city but it was rebuilt in relatively short time. In 1672 Lviv was besieged by Ottomans but the piece treaty was signed before city fell. Still it left heavy wounds and the city was not yet recovered by 1704 when it was defeated and pillaged for the first time in its history by Charles 12th of Sweden. During the Austrian times city experienced its golden age but then many wars followed which left buildings intact but devastated its population and multiethnic character. Soviet rule after 2nd WW may be seen as another form of devastation because much of the old city was left to decay. Today lots is being renovated and city is trying to get back some of its splendour.

Lviv Web Resources in English

by om_212

The 2012 Football Championship has stimulated creation of two very good websites on Lviv – Lviv. Travel and Visit.Lviv that besides good graphics and useful information in Ukrainian have comprehensive and adequate English translations. Besides things to do, the places to stay (including hostels), places to eat, it has the list of upcoming events, which I find particularly useful.

Post Office

by hunterV

My friend Diana from Amsterdam asked me to help her at the post-office.
So we went there and inquired about their services.
The central post-office occupies an old huge building at 1 Slovatsky Street.
Tel.+380 322 721080
The area code for Lviv is 79000.
The post-office has a detailed web site, but unfortunately only in Ukrainian.

Castle of Potozky Family

by bugulma

The castle was built in 70-s of XIX century by Tsibul'sky architect. In 1920 in the city celebration the plane fell on the roof and the palace was reconstructed in style we see nowadays. Since 1972 the registry office was here. In 1998 the other restoration works begun and the castle is a part of Fine Arts Gallery. It is situated not far from George Hotel.

Lots of music

by lohdennis

There was spontaneous and non-show music--particularly singing everywhere. First, there was some large group of military types celebrating new recruits. The ceremony went on and on for hours. Then there was a group of people right next door praying in front of a statue of Mary. Then, then there were a pair of blind women singing for money. Then at night, a spontaneous group of about 20 middle-aged men and women singing "patriotic" songs. I heard more non-commercial music in this city than anywhere else I have recently traveled.
