What you'll do

Did you know, that its just a 15-20 minute walk from the old town to a vivid forest? Are you ready for some hiking?

We meet at Rynok square - the very heart of the old town. We will walk through the oldest parts of the city towards the High Castle. You will learn about the history of lesser-known parts of Lviv. I will show you some peculiar courtyards and monasteries.

Then we are going to have a light hike towards the top of High Castle Hill, the seat of power of the XIII century Ruthenian kings. Our path will go through the magnificent High Castle Park, the favorite place for holiday walks created by an Austrian gardener Bauer 150 years ago.

Finally, we are going to climb the High Castle Hill, the highest viewpoint of Lviv.

Other things to note.

Please, take some comfortable clothes and shoes. This tour involves going up the stairs so be ready for an exercise. The hill itself is not accessible for people in wheelchairs.

Hi there, I am Andriy, a certified tour guide from Lviv. As a lifelong resident of Lviv, nothing gets me more excited than being able to share with you what I believe to be the most beautiful city in Ukraine.

My main goal is to turn every tour into a vivid experience, using two extremely powerful tools: compelling storytelling and your imagination. As we walk the streets, I'll recount the stories of my city, bring to life merciful kings and courageous heroes, horrible tyrants, and treacherous villains.

I travel much myself, therefore I can easily relate to my guests and provide them with the best possible service.

Where you'll be

We will visit a XVI century Renaissance monastery, a gem often overlooked by the tourists. We will see some very interesting hidden courtyards: a courtyard of lost toys, a Soviet-era artifacts yard and also the yards of the two oldest churches in Lviv. I'll take you to the oldest part of the city - Old Market Square, a place where it all began in the XIII century. Then we'll go off the beaten path and hike on the slopes of the High Castle Hill.
