and some even stay forever. it´s a great place, so many wonderful tombstones, carved, one depicted a boat across the river Styx. And amazingly quiet, despite a lot of tour groups.

Beautiful cemetary, very much in the tradition of Père Lachaise in Paris. I missed the significance of many Polish/Ukrainian people but found the grave of my math hero Banach. Very interesting to see the richness of all these graves.

Pretty big cemetery with a lot of uniquely decorated headstones. I think there were some famous people there too, but can't read Cyrillic nor know who they are (ignorance is bliss!). Lots of tour buses coming this was too, so is a drawcard for local...More

Here one can see both old Polish tombstones and those of Ukrainian apparatchiks during the Soviet rule. Take the bus or trolley to get within close walking distance. Spend a dollar to get a map of some of the greats here.

Well worth a visit to this extremely interesting cemetery. When you pay the entrance fee they give you a map of the area, which came in very handy.

This was my favorite place in all of Lviv. There was a small charge. It was a very peaceful place. The old memorials, crypts, and statuary were amazing!

What a place to tour, you see so much history, monuments of people of importance from the mid 1700's and forward. Taking a tour of the cemetery is well worth your while if you want to be informed, but this is one area you do...More

The walking tour was very informative and sad at the same time. The soldiers, both Ukrainian and Poles, fought for a year from 1918-1919, lives were lost and nothing resolved. War kills the young. This cemetery shares the complex realty of Poland and Ukraine. The...More
