In Lviv you can find nice, interesting or even intimidating basements and underground cellars. Neither will we just be crawling through tunnels with you, nor will be bore you to death with many boring dates. We wanna make you feel the places you are at – in a funny way with stunning or even really scary stories. We are sure that we can push a shiver down your spine. But one thing is for sure: We will make sure you will remember it the day after. *Haha – terrible laughter*
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 show them 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.
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 and can throw a coin there for good luck.
