New Year's Eve in Lviv

Description

To discover %Liv%, the splendid legendary and poetic city of western Ukraine, a true jewel of the Carpathians, both authentic and modern. The architecture of the old town, in Austro-Hungarian and Polish style with Baroque influences from the Italian Renaissance, is remarkable.
