Hello, I am Andriy, a tour guide from Lviv. I'm passionate about history, architecture, art; I love gaining new knowledge and sharing it with others.

I travel much myself, therefore I can provide my guests with the best possible experience.
I believe that the best way to discover history is through stories of people, and I would like to invite you to Lviv, a city well worth visiting.

My hometown of Lviv over the course of its more than 700-year-old history has lived through ups and downs, rises and falls of empires, personal triumphs of artists and inventors, peaks and valleys of noble families and common folk. Lviv bears both opulence of good fortune and scars of ill fate and wars.
