Your first stop in Lviv will inevitably lead you to the heart of the city – Rynok Square, that can be translated as Market Square. For the past 500 years it has been the bustling center of city life and till now retains all the charm of the old European city, without the pretentions of its more famous neighbors – Prague and Krakow.

The Square has the traditional City Town Hall, built in 19th century, and is surrounded by 44 houses, representing art and architecture from many centuries (16th – 20th century). Many of the houses are still used primarly as living headquarters, though few have become museums, art galleries and coffee shops
