Historic, beautiful, and fiercely Ukrainian, Lviv is the perfect destination for an off-the-beaten-track city break. There are no signs of Soviet oppression in the city, which is more similar to Prague and Krakow than cities in the Eastern Ukraine. The UNESCO listed city centre, with its narrow cobbled streets and buzzing café bars, features some of the best architecture in Eastern Europe. The beer is said to have magical properties, and locals say “those who drink Lviv beer will one hundred years live.”
