They are two of the most visited sights of Lviv and a visitors favourite: Lychakiv Cemetery and the Museum of Folk Architecture Shevchenkivskyi Hai. And they are situated not far from each other, a little bit east of Lviv Old Town. Therefore it makes sense to combine them in a tour and visit both Lychakiv Cemetery and Shevchenkivskyi Hai in one tour.

Traditional farm houses and wooden churches at the Lviv Museum for Folk Architecture

Ukrainians have lived in wooden houses in the countryside of Western Ukraine for centuries. The architecture of these buildings tells you much about their lifestyle. Real people work in the farm houses and show you different crafts. Discover an oil mill, where people still press seeds for oil. You can even taste the oil and see what different oils were used over the centuries. In one of the houses you can play or just listen to traditional Ukrainian instruments, in others you learn more about Ukrainian Easter eggs, which are called pysanky.

Learn more with local guides who are experts on these traditions

Our guides are all from Ukraine. They will show you in detail how people in the Ukrainian countryside live. They have grown up with local Ukrainian traditions and explain you how people practice them and know the meaning behind them. And of course they can translate you whatever is being said by the people in museums and bring you in better touch with them. This way you will get a much better knowledge of our country than you would get on your own. 

Most beautiful cemetery in Ukraine

Lychakiv Cemetery offers you a comprehensive tour of Lviv and its culture since its establishment under Austrian rule in 1786. With more than 300.000 graves, you wouldn’t find out all the details that this place has to offer on your own. But the stories of the people buried here are simply intriguing and will give you an insight into what life was like during Austrian times. Dating back 150 years, you will find a beautiful mix of architecture that the builders of the graves used for the deceased. It’s a real trip through time and several architectural periods when you visit this cemetery.
