The five best things about this tour

Detailed description

More about your experience with us

Now being a predominantly Ukrainian city, Lviv was always known to be a melting pot of different cultures throughout the centuries. Walk with us through at least half a dozen cultures that left their traces in Lviv. Our guides know all the corners of the city and have been trained in various subjects of history, so that they can show you the best places and explain you the history behind them. Our Lviv Free Walking Tour – Cultures of Lviv is the best way to reveal the forgotten history of Polish Lwow, Jewish or Austrian Lemberg, Ukrainian Lviv or Italian Leopoli. And did you know that Lviv has been the home of Armenians for more than six centuries?

Stops of our Lviv Free Walking Tour – Cultures

Our walk is relaxed and we won’t bore you with plain historic facts and dates. We will wrap them in compelling stories about the life in this beautiful city through the centuries. And believe us: In the 2.5 hours we can tell you quite a few stories – and we have even more! Some of the places that you will see and hear about:

  • the biggest wedding gift ever given in Ukraine
  • Austrians and coffee house culture in Lviv
  • the church where Armenian Apostolics are praying in a church of Armenian Catholics
  • the present that you get when you fail as a prime minister

Unfortunately we only have 2.5 to 3 hours with you. But we could fill this tour with much more! So join us to get at least the very essence of the Cultures of Lviv.

For all our free tours, we meet at the Amphitrite fountain on Rynok Square. Watch out for a white umbrella with a Lviv Buddy logo on it! Also note that there are other tour companies that conduct tours and also use umbrellas for recognition. Please make sure to end up with the white umbrella!

You don’t need to book your spot as our guides will always be on the meeting point at the given times. But we recommend reserving a spot, because if the groups are too big, we can send people with no reservation away.

No, it's not, but...

… our guides come to the meeting point anyways. But in case the group is larger than 25 people and we did not know about this before, we will have to prefer people that have a reservation. If you make a reservation we can always organise an extra guide a guarantee a great quality tour for everyone.

And if you are a group of more than 6 people...

… we are very sorry, but we usually won’t permit you to the free tour. But we are happy to offer you some great private tours that can be very inexpensive. Check for example our Private Must See Tour and others for a small fee.
