+++ Due to the current situation concerning Russian troops at the Ukrainian border and the ongoing pandemic, we have decided to suspend our Lviv Free Walking Tours until the beginning of April. We are very sorry and hope to see you either on one of our Lviv private tours or some other time in Lviv. Thanks for understanding and your support for Ukraine’s independence! +++ Most tourists come to Lviv, only to see those places that they have been reading about or seen before. But Lviv offers so much more. Countless palaces, churches, houses, square, monuments and restaurants, that would make up major tourist attractions in other cities but in Lviv they are hardly noticed, because there are so many other places that are more obvious. That is exactly why we have created our new free tour „Hidden Secrets of Lviv“. Here we want to show you those places that give you great stories, remarkable photos and a deep insight into our beautiful city.

Detailed description

Find out what you will be doing on the tour with us

Finding out more about the history of Lviv in places that you would usually not get to see is the main focus of our Lviv Free Walking Tour – Hidden Secrets. There are beautiful buildings to be discovered, like the Villa Dunikovskoho with its rich decorations and sculptures. You can also take a picture next to quirky sights of Lviv like the Street of the many names or the Monument to a backpack which especially our world travelling guests always see as a highlight.
But we also don’t spare out the horrific details of Lviv history when we show you how some of the World’s most famous scientists survived World War II and how meanwhile tens of thousands of people suffered and dies in Stalag 328 in a place that now houses a 5 star hotel. And we will also show you the only prison museum in Ukraine where people from different backgrounds suffered from oppression.
