The historic city of Lviv is Ukraine's cultural hotspot and holds a place on the UNESCO World Heritage List for its fusion of Eastern European architecture with Italian and German styles. Here tourists will discover world renowned institutions - such as the Lviv Theatre of Opera and Ballet - hidden amongst quiet and authentic local avenues.
Packed with museums, galleries, theatres and opera houses, Lviv shows a different side to Ukraine than the scenic Carpathian Mountains. For a base from which to explore, the Radisson Blu Resort, Bukovel offers upscale amenities less than 230 kilometres from Lviv city.

What to see in Lviv
Get panoramic views of Lviv by climbing Castle Hill - Lviv's highest point. Originally built of soil and wood, the castle long served as Lviv's defensive fort. It's currently in ruins but the climb is worth it for the vista from the top.
Back down to earth, stroll around the Lychakiv Cemetry which is the historic burial place for Lviv's intelligentsia and upper classes. It's a sprawling necropolis, full of ornate sculptures and magnificent tombs.
To truly experience the culture of Lviv, visit the Lviv Theatre of Opera and Ballet. Look out for the elaborate stucco and oil paintings that cover the inside and the three bronze sculptures perched on the roof - symbolising Music, Glory and Poetry. Guests will find performances reasonably priced and it is the best way to see inside Lviv's most inspiring building.
