I took Lviv Fortifications in April 2014 and was amazed at Ihor's profound knowledge of the subject and the city's history in general. Ihor's services are highly recommended; a tour with him will make you stay in Lviv even more enjoyable and entertaining.

Description Prices Meeting point Photos Reviews

We traditionally treat old Lviv as a gem of architecture. But medieval Lviv presented a powerful fortress.
In spite of the further Lviv development and subsequent losses, many elements of old Lviv fortifications have survived. One could see the fragments of the city walls and ground ramparts, the picturesque Powder tower, armories, powerful fortifications of the abbeys around Lviv. Constructions adjoining the ancient walls of Lviv, in particular the towers of Latin and Armenian cathedrals, the Korniakt tower — also had the defensive significance. The core of the defensive system of the city in the 19th c. comprised the magnificent city citadel.
All these survived and restored Lviv fortifications present an important element of the unique architectural ensemble of the Lviv city centre and are of great importance for the fans of military history, architecture and battlefield tours.
The tours are provided for the individual groups.
The price of the tour for the group of 3-6 persons — 400 Ukrainian hryvna (in case the tour provided in English).
