Instead of Soviet buildings typical of Ukraine, Lviv boasts a charming Central European-style old town with World Heritage Site status.
Museum of Folk Architecture and Life and Olesko Castle are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visit Armenian street and Church of St. Andrew for their historical value. When in Lviv, make a side trip to see Pidhirtsi Castle in Pidhirtsi, approximately 1h 25 min away. There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Church of the Jesuits, see the interesting displays at Beer Cultural Experience Center “Lvivarnya”, take in the spiritual surroundings of Church of Sts. Olha and Elizabeth, and take an in-depth tour of Prison on Lontskogo, National Museum and Memorial to the Victims of Occupation.
