Culture...

It's said that when the stone lions that stud the city notice a young maiden strolling by, the mighty beasts let out a roar. However, being distinctly cultured fellows, they roar in a fashion which we humans cannot perceive. Travellers with a lion's appetite for culture will be pleased to hear that you won't have to look far to find treasures in Lviv. Simply walking the streets is a pleasure, whilst you could spend several days exploring the delights of the Old Market Square alone. In amongst all these grand old buildings are some tremendous museums. You can savour everything from priceless religious icons in a fine old mansion to the gothic charms of a three hundred year-old (and still functioning) chemists. Meanwhile, Lviv's Gallery of Painting boasts an array of Central and Eastern European art that can put the collections of many better known cities to shame. Musical wayfarers too, will find treats in store. Besides the odd classical performance in one of the city's ancient churches, there's a sublime opera house on hand. At various times of year the romantic old opera house gets involved in Lviv's musical festivals. Last but not least, film buffs may not be able to resist a trip to one of Lviv's eccentric old cinemas, which may have you feeling like you've become a character in a film yourself.
