Whether you're looking for a relaxing retreat, an educational experience, or an opportunity to explore the history of the city, there are plenty of things to do in Lviv. It's an easy city to explore. The best times to visit are in the shoulder seasons of spring and summer, when the weather is mild. Lviv is also home to several picturesque parks, including the Stryiskyi Park. It's a large park and can be reached on public transport. The park is open around the clock, making it easy to visit during the day. It's also a favourite among locals.

For a different view of the city, visit the Observation Deck at the town hall building. The tower contains a 360 deg view of the city's historic centre.

Lviv is known for its great coffee, and the city has several cafes that serve up amazing drinks. One of the best is the Chocolate Factory, which offers treats and souvenirs.
