"Welcome to Zhovkva" Zhovkva by yumyum

Zhovkva Travel Guide: 25 reviews and 78 photos

The main restorated square is huge. This small town features several old churches, a non-decript castle and city gates.

Mainly Polish tourists come here to this town which is situated just north of Lviv.

Lots of domestic animals can be seen walking around town. This one was panicking as it may not have seen a camera before.

This sculpture is found near the bus station.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:a good half-day trip from Lviv

    Hi Sonja, I always find it amazing to read about the out-of-the-way places you have visited. Too bad this town didn't provide a bit more information about the various buildings.

    A very interesting town - would just need a lot of "remont" but a rewarding short trip from L'viv with only few tourists around.

    This looks like a fascinating off the beaten path destination with loads of secret sights. Fantastic little page. Keep up the good work .... :-)
