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.

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).
