Editor's review

A trip to Lviv somehow wouldn't be complete without a wander around the Lychakiv graveyard. Initially opened in 1787 in compliance with an Austrian law to move burials from the centre of town, the cemetery soon became one of Europe's finest. Generations of Lvovians were laid to rest here: intelligentsia, bourgeoisie and nobility especially. Originally the majority of plots were taken up by Poles, and there are many grand names, including Maria Konopnicka and Stefan Banach. However, Ukrainian seer Ivan Franko was also entombed here, and after the Second World War, an increasing number of Ukrainian tombs were squeezed in to the already packed necropolis. Beyond Lychakiv (Lyczakow in Polish) visitors will find the famed military cemetery of Orlat.
