We meet at the Amphitrite fountain on Rynok Square, right next to Pravda Beer Theatre. Watch for white umbrellas to spot us!

  • Hear about the most important Jewish institutions in Lviv
  • Learn about the Holocaust in Lviv
  • See what happened to the synagogues of Lviv until today
  • Taste some coffee in one of the most beautiful cafes in Lviv

But of course a history of Jewish Lviv can not spare the dark times of the city and therefore we will also show you the places where the Lviv Ghetto used to be after the Shoa started. We will guide you to all the places related to the Holocaust in Lviv and show you the former Jewish quarter. On our tour you will also get to know one of the two last remaining synagogues in Lviv that is now a Jewish Cultural Center. Here you may be able to talk to people who are active in the preservation of local Jewish heritage in Lviv.
We are very sure that this is the best Jewish tour that this city has to offer. It has been carefully researched by our team members who are historians and experts on Jewish history and it will show you places that no other tour can offer you! Come with us, to discover the amazing Jewish history of this city!

Coffee break during the Lviv Free Walking Tour

We always stop on our free tours for a coffee or a drink. It’s one of our traditions, because we want to give you a chance to ask us any questions and to get to know each other and the other participants. We love being social and we want people to meet each other and make this world a friendlier place. At this occasion you can try some real Lviv cheesecake (Sirnik) and some famous Lviv coffee! 

Gifts and a great service to make you happy

Our idea of free tours is to make it as comfortable for our guests as possible. Not just with great guiding and an interesting route, but also with small extras. That’s why we created a Lviv Map that tells you all the important facts about Lviv and Ukraine and gives you tips from our guides on where to go in the city and what to do. And just like our tours they are free! Each participant will get one at the end of the free tour!
Also on rainy days our guides don’t just have an umbrella for themselves, but also for you! Yes, you read right, we will provide you with umbrellas during the duration of the tour! But we can only know how many umbrellas to take, if you reserve a spot for our tour before it starts.

What guests say about this tour

We enjoyed a great walking tour in Lviv with our guide. She was engaging, well prepared and did a great job. The walking tour gave us an understanding of the 700 hundred year old history of the Jewish community in Lviv. It was very interesting and moving to hear the unjust treatment this Jewish community experienced at the hand of totalitarian regimes. I would highly recommend this 3 hour walking tour.

Me and my friends decided to spend Saturday afternoon to get to know the city we currently study in. We got really interested with the Jewish Lviv theme, so we came for this walking tour and it was actually amazing! We got to know so many things about history, traditions and we were taken back in time with fantastic tour guide. She told us and show us so many interesting things, and everything went so well in very friendly atmosphere. I could honestly say that it was the best free walking tour I have been to so far thanks to our guide.

Such a wonderful and informative tour of the sadly often terrible history of the Jewish population of Lviv. Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Met some great folks on the tour too and we even stopped off at a superb little coffee shop en route. What's not to like? I'd recommend these guys to anyone.
