About this tour

This tour is best for people who are visiting the city of Lviv for the first time and for those who have not yet walked around Lviv with a guide. The tour should start from the entrance to the Town Hall building (Rynok Square, 1) - one of the symbols of our city, the building in which, as before, today there are offices of city officials. There are 45 houses in central Rynok Square, each of which has its history. The first regular post office was opened in one of them, the consulate of Venice was located in the other, and original records were set in the other. Nearby are the Bandinelli Palace, where the first regular post office was opened, the famous Black House - the oldest building on the square and the luxurious Kornyakt Palace - the former residence of King Jan III Sobieski. Rynok Square was glorious once, and it is glorious now - here are popular establishments, such as restaurants Kryivka and Masonry or the Coffee Mine. During the tour, you can also see the interiors of these establishments. On the way to the Jewish quarter, it is worth stopping by the Lviv Chocolate Workshop, not far from which there is a monument to Leopold von Sacher-Masoch.
