Jewish heritage in Lviv and much more.


Taking this tour, you will penetrate into atmosphere of the pre-war Lviv, where about 30% of inhabitans were of Jewish origin. You will visit their beloved places, walk on the paths they were walking. I will also share with you stories, which I have heard from the survivours. But life goes on. You will also hear about life of Jews in Lviv today.
