About this tour

The underground city beckons to itself... What secrets does it hide from us?


Having descended into the dungeon of the Dominican monastery, we will be able to find out where the palace of Prince Leo was located in the XIII century, why the rich and beautiful Galshka Ostrozhskaya was hiding with the Lviv monks, and we will also be able to learn more about the Dominican monks. Passing through long corridors, we will look into small cells: one of them depicts a monk, the other a witch ...


Next in line is a meeting with an old Lviv pharmacy, within the walls of which there is a unique museum of pharmacy. Let's go into the halls, which contain pharmacy utensils, cash registers, presses, and medicines. Now let's go through the gallery to the alchemist's laboratory. Here, in a mysterious atmosphere, tourists will hear a story about how the alchemists tried to get rich. Next - deep stone dungeons and access to the courtyard of an old Lviv house.


Underground of the Church and the College of Jesuit Monks… Why was this Catholic order so rich? What is the purpose of their activities? What was on the site of their church before it was built? In these dungeons, tourists will have the opportunity to find out answers to other exciting questions, for example, why is there a large stone sarcophagus in one of the halls and for whom was it intended? Also in the underground halls of this tourist site, there are plastic panoramas of Lviv from different historical periods, which will allow you to better understand the fascinating history of Lviv.
