Lviv Ukraine Aug 08, 2017
I travelled from Przemysl Poland by bus to Lviv western Ukraine, for a 2 night stay. Bus fare was 25 zloty, journey took 3 hours with a delay at border. Arrived at Lviv bus station which is a little way out of town, so took a taxi to George Hotel . Driver gave me a fare before starting journey. The journey was fast dodging potholes in the road, arrived safe and paid the agreed fare. There are two trains a day from Przemysl to Lviv, but they arrive at unsocial hours. Dont forget watches move on one hour on entering Ukraine.---- Town Hall tower can be climbed for a great view. Admission 5 UAH [ 2009].The Town Hall is a four storey building with a patio.---- Black House is on Rynok Square near the town hall, is now a museum.There are loads of museums in Lviv, this is most famous.---- Opera house and Ballet was built in classical style between 1897 and 1900. originally called Grand Theatre it stands at one end of Svobody Avenue Lviv.----Dominican Church ,during soviet times was used as storage warehouse, now a Greek Orthodox Church, building from the 17th century.----Lviv University faces into Ivan Franko Park, covered in snow in March 2009.-----Bus in Lviv not much use to tourists ,unless locals tell you the desination.---Trams most useful to me were 1,6, and 10 centre to rail station.----Ukrainian Beer is half the price of British beer, a slogan is "Those that drink Lviv Beer,will a hundred years live".----- Returning to Przemysol Poland by train at 07-18 am at Lviv station, it was the night train from Kyiv, nearly everbody got off at Lviv.so nearly empty. There was a 55 minute delay at border. Remembered to put my watch back one hour.
