He will be able to point out the splendid architecture in and around the Rynok (Market Square) and Old Town. A mixture of styles are on show, with international influences – Russian, Austrian-Galician, Polish and Ukrainian.
Founded in 1256, the Old Town has such sights as the magnificent Roman Catholic Latin Catherdral, the Boim Chapel (the only surviving 16th century family chapelin the city), the Bernardine Greek Catholic Church of St Andrew, the Byzantine Armenian Cathedral, the Korniakt Palace with its Italian courtyard, and many other churches and palaces, all lovingly restored. Quirky places of interest include the Lwów Coffee Mine in the Square, which needs to be seen to be believed!
Further out, climb to the top of the Vysokyi Zamok hill, from where a beautiful panorama of the city can be seen, visit the Potocki Palace, now a renowned art museum, and go inside one of the most beautiful Opera Houses in Europe.
Of course, a visit to the Lychakiv Cemetery (Cmentarz Łyczakowski) is a must. Over 400 acres in size, this is a moving and beautiful experience. See the Powstanie Styczniowe (January 1863 Uprising) and Powstanie Listopadowe (November 1830 Uprising) Memorials with the graves of hundreds of insurgents, and the Lwów Orlęta Cemetery (Cmentarz Orląt Lwowskich), as well as the graves of many famous Poles with connections to the region.
