Lviv is a city with a special atmosphere, which was ruled by kings for more than half a millennium. It is a city of coffee and a city of 1,000s of lions, a city of jazz, rain, chocolate, terraces and passionate tango. All these little joys of life have grown into a tradition for every Lviv resident. The heart of the city is Rynok Square, where the 65-meter town hall stands. I didn’t go up to it – think, I didn’t see Lviv! The picture that the kings admired has not changed at all: some 408 steps up – and you have fantastic views. The observation deck of Lviv’s Big Ben was opened only in 2003. And during this time the views from the tower won the title of the most picturesque panoramic area of ​​Lviv. What was once unattainable has now become common for citizens.
