About the tour

Lviv buildings still keep the spirit of past centuries especially the spirit if Austria-Hungary Emporia. Usually we are jockeying and call this period “Granny Austria”. The numerous museums and galleries, palaces, cosy cafes and restaurants, first skyscrapers and shopping malls are the heritage of that period so we will start our trip from the magnificent palace of 19th century. Olena will show you pastry shop which used to be a pharmacy before World War 2. We will walk along Austrian city center - Svoboda (Freedom)Avenue. And you will see one of the Lviv’s treasures- Opera and Ballet House

Meet your local guide


Olena is a local licensed guide in Lviv, Western Ukraine. While not a true Lviv citizen, being born in the South of Ukraine near Black Sea, Olena is still totally in love with the amazing city of Lviv! Her career as a guide started in 2015 when she was a part of Leopolis Jazz Fest, one of the most existing Lviv festivals.

It's something like a hidden treasure, or as her friends might say: a European city with Ukrainien soul. Architecture, taste cuisine, beautiful language, local traditions and unforgettable atmosphere. One experience in Lviv with Olena and you'll never forget it!

Olens had good info. Maybe she could slow down and let camera focus better to allow more time to take photos. Looking forward to more trips to learn more.

We enjoyed her tour very much...sometimes her camera moved very fast as well as her words, but we loved it . Can she tell me the name of the book she recommended...was it East West Street by Sands? Thank you. See you again.
