Amazingly beautiful corners in downtown of Lviv


Tour of Lviv courtyards, three Cathedrals, former monastery and Pharmacy museum. You will see something hidden from an ordinary view. I would be happy to give you the unique experience of visiting the places which even not all citizens of Lviv have seen. Have you ever heard about Jan Henrik Rozen? Believe me, you will never forget his art works!

A Recent Review of this tour

Iryna is a passionate and exceptionally knowledgable guide. The tour of hidden pockets of Lviv gave a new and in-depth perspective on the city. Something that you're unlikely to get on a regular tour. Iryna's comprehensive understanding of history meant that you get a complete and accurate picture. Her tour also has an element of fun and quirkiness. Highly recommend Iryna and her tour.
