Drohobych is one of the most underrated cities in Western Ukraine. While it is the second biggest city in Lviv Oblast it only gets a tiny fraction of the tourists that Lviv gets. This hidden jewel has many things to offer though. With us you can get a deep inside into the city.
One of the most unique places in Drohobych is it’s old salt mine. Salt was being produced in Drohobych even before Lviv was even founded. Nowadays you can take a dive into how this production used to look like. We bring you to the mine and show you where the salt is coming from and how it’s being produced. You will love this place and as a gift you will get some of the best gourmet salt to take home with you!
While most towns in Ukraine barely have any old Ukrainian wooden churches, Drohobych even has two. St. George Wooden Church in Drohobych is part of the Unesco World Heritage of Wooden Churches in Ukraine and Poland. It’s neighbouring Church of the Holy Cross is just as old and equally pretty. We will take you into the churches and tell you about the secret meanings of their paintings and about why there are two churches inside of one even.
Drohobych is now rediscovering it’s Jewish past. It’s celebrating it’s most famous Jewish son: Bruno Schulz. The author of “Street of the Crocodiles” grew up here and was killed here: like so many others in the Drohobych ghetto. But Jewish Drohobych is resurrecting from it’s past, with the great Choral Synagogue having been renovated. We will bring you to all of these places and make you discover them!
And of course we will enjoy all the other treats that a guest of Drohobych should not miss. The tower of the town hall offers great views over Drohobych and the surrounding towns. There are many other buildings to discover: the old Polish church, the monument of Yuriy Drohobych and the former KGB building. And on top of all of this we will invite you to try the best local Drohobytska sausage that you can find.
