Ukraine - Lviv & Western Ukraine (Chapter)
This is the Lviv & Western Ukraine chapter from Lonely Planet’s Ukraine guidebook.
More quintessentially Ukrainian than the rest of the country, and distinctly more European, the west is all about the captivating Galician capital of Lviv. The moody Carpathian Mountains are a short bus ride away, as are historic Lutsk, Truskavets and the Pochayiv Monastery.
- do a spot of cobble-surfing in Lviv’s historical centre packed with churches, museums and eccentric restaurants
- make a caffeine-and-cake halt at Lviv’s coffeehouses, some of the best in the country
- restaurants & accommodation
- head uphill to Kremenets Fortress for show-stopping views of the town’s many churches
Coverage includes: Lviv, Zhovkva, Olesko, Drohobych, Ternopil, Pochayiv, Kremenets, Ternopil Caves, Volyn & Rivne Regions, Lutsk, Shatsky National Nature Park, Dubno and Rivne.
