Itinerary

Day
1-5
Welcome to the beautiful city of Lviv… Prepare to be amazed by the beauty of this city – somehow it manages to be cosmopolitan and quaint at the same time! Time stands still in Lviv – it truly is a city of a laid-back, café culture where you can pick a spot, relax, and watch the world go by… Get to know this city, which will become your home for the next two weeks! Discover the city’s history on guided tours, from the ancient centre to the mystical cemetery and impressive cathedrals! Feel at home on “Ploshcha Rynok” or Market Square, a square which is constantly buzzing with life, home to street performers, and musicians, who will serenade you with their folk tunes….
Day
5-10
Step back in time – see how Ukrainians used to live at the Shevchenkivsky Hai, where you can explore recreations of Ukrainian villages from centuries ago! We’ll also see how the other half lived – marvel at Lviv’s stunning castles. The Galicia region is home to so many beautiful castles and palaces – of all shapes and sizes! We’ll even get to taste homemade raspberry wine at Svirzh castle. Don’t worry! You’ll also have plenty of free time to relax, shop, read a book or just soak up the enigmatic atmosphere of this romantic city.
Day
10-14
Finally, we’ll show you some of the more undiscovered gems of Lviv. Explore the Opera House behind closed door and marvel at its stunning interiors. Shop like a local on the Krakivsky market – you’ll be sure to get some bargains here! And then learn to cook like a local at a Ukrainian cookery class! This Long Stay experience is one you’ll never forget. You’ll feel like you’ve truly got to know Lviv and its culture, its people, its secrets and its energy. Our Long Stay itinerary is 14 days long, but we recommend you stay an extra week or two.
