Hottest coffee

On our Lviv Underground Tour you will get to see the most intriguing places of Lviv. Guests get to see the interesting catacombs below churches, the pharmacy museum and the Opera and get to drink the hottest coffee they can imagine.

On the tour we will show you the old palace of the Ruthenian princes, which was home to a medieval torture chamber. In the other chambers guests can find out about various famous people that were imprisoned here and about the famous legends connect to this mystic place.

Short walks connect all places to visit on this tour and bring you also to Lviv’s oldest working pharmacy, which is is now the pharmacy museum. In the partial underground exhibition guests will learn a lot about the development of pharmacy from medieval alchemists to the modern industrial production. The original interior of the museum offers countless possibilities for photos.

Hottest coffee break in Lviv

On the hottest coffee break that one can have in Lviv, guests will almost get their eyebrows burned, when we stop for this tasty treat. This also makes it much easier to then go and explore the underground of two important Lviv churches. At the Transfiguration church you can see the krypta where monks used to be buried and where now youth groups pray. At St. Peter and Paul guests can see models of the cities development from 3 different time periods and find out more about one of the most scary ghost stories of the city.

The tour finishes at the Opera, where guests can see the underground river Poltva flow by on the local camera and find out more about the history connected to the river and how it went underground (only on the afternoon tour because of opening hours of the Opera Underground).

What guests say about this tour

I took a Private Underground walking tour and my experience was AMAZING! I had a greattt guide, his English was beyond perfect and he is also very friendly! I have rarely met such an enthusiastic and a cool person. It would be perfectly accurate to say that Lviv Buddy made my trip unforgettable! One should not leave Lviv without taking a tour from Lviv Buddy.

Our guide was fantastic and did a brilliant job of taking me to all the sites and explaining everything. He made sure not to saturate the tour with too much information and did a good job making things fun and entertaining. I particularly enjoyed his sense of humour and the sealed coffee. I would definitely recommend the Lviv Buddy tours to anyone visiting Lviv.

Leo Bennett

We did the Underground Tour as a family with 2 teenagers and a baby & loved every minute. Exploring the catacombs and getting detailed historical commentary from our guide was excellent. His English was perfect and you can tell he has genuine interest in his subject and love for the city. He didn’t just spin stories but is full of historical facts as well as some good ghost stories.. He let us ask a million questions and gave us good recommendations for restaurants as well.
