It is impossible to spend two identical days in Lviv, find two the same houses, or drink equal cups of coffee. The culture of the city fascinates both foreign tourists and Ukrainian ones. When you arrive in Lviv, be prepared for an indeed “free city” hospitality. Here you can drink coffee all day long, sing with street musicians, and enjoy life to the fullest.
We advise travelers from Ukraine to be prepared for a particular Galician speech. “Lviv language” is a kind of mixture of Ukrainian as well as words of Polish and German origin. Some examples of unusual words “frizura” means “hairstyle,” “shpatserovat,” means “to go for a walk,” “znymkuvatys,” means to take pictures. And Lviv people are very talkative, so if you do not understand anything, everyone will be happy to give an explanation.
Also, we have some news for foreign guests. Lviv has a well-developed service sector, namely the hotel and restaurant business. The vast number of beautiful themed cafes will not leave any tourist indifferent! Foreign languages are also well-known in Lviv, so you can easily speak English, Polish, or even German if you get lucky with your interlocutor.
If you want to dive into the atmosphere of Lviv, we recommend staying in the city center. If you book a room in Grand Hotel Lviv, you can reach the most exciting sights of Lviv in a couple of minutes. And a little tip on how to get to the hotel from the train station or the airport: public transportation is not a convenient option, a taxi driver can drive around the streets, so we recommend the transfer services of the hotel. We will make sure that you get to the hotel quickly, safely, and with maximum comfort!
