Before World War II Lviv was under the Polish rule. In the beginning of September 1939 Luftwaffe conquered sky of all Poland. The Second World War were started by Nazi German and Soviet Union as allies, who wanted to divide the world.
During and after WWII the citizens of Lviv were the victim of many war crimes against humanity from Soviet and Nazi regimes. There are a lot of places which looks like a black spot in our city. I will show you some of that places and tell you about their history.

We will see Rynok square, Liberation museum, old Casino, Lviv University, St. Yura cathedral church, "Lonskoho prison", "Brygitky", old synagogue, Jewish ghetto, "Territory of terror" and many other monuments and places.

Our tour with Mykhailo was informative and an important way to start our excursion in Ukraine. While the subject matter of WWII history is difficult, Mykhailo did a nice job of blending historical fact with present day implications and promise for the future of Ukraine. Walking under the bridge leading to the former Jewish ghetto was powerful. Stepping inside of Lviv University and learning about past and present day scholars was also an important aspect of our tour. Lviv is a must see! Slava Ukrayini!
