Lviv Things to Do: 311 reviews and 904 photos

Actually, from the castle there left only about 5 meters of 1 wall. As one giude told me,
castle was builtd in 14th century like fortification, but, when few hundred years past and in the city all rock for building houses was over, people started to steal rocks from the castle /which is f or that time was useless for defending/, and till nowadays only a piece of 1 wall left. But! That is not the most eciting about this place, called 'High castle'. It was situated on quite big hump, and now there sight area, open to anyone who will be able to overcome few hundreds of footsteps /about 300 as I remmemeber/. From the top you can notice marvelous view on all city, espessially on old part of it. It is deffinatly worth to see!

Address: 'High Castle' Park
Directions: Better to take a taxi to the beggining of stairs, but it is simple to walk there from old city also - Pidvalna St.>Kryvonosa St,>Knyazhna St, to the dead end, there you will see beggining of stairs. Walk is about 15-20 min from center.
