Took the time to walk from the Square to this observatory in the middle of the city...the view of Lviv is spectacular, but unfortunately the infra-structure is in disrepair, you have to be careful, especially if many people

Quite a long walk from the centre of Lviv and essentially only the remnants of a castle wall remain. The castle was originally the focal point of the city and was built in the 14th century by the Polish king Casimir the Great after he...More

Good panoramic view of Lviv but nothing much else to see there. It's worth the walk up from the town though.

Like heroes we were climbing the hill at + 35° to see a well-known sightseeing spot. A sheer waste of time. At the top you will not find any castle at all. Just a part of a very unattractive old wall to the left of...More

It's quite a hike up to the High Castle, but well-worth the trek. The path is a safety inspectors nightmare- uneven pavement, missing guard rails and more. But the view on the top is great- a clear view of the city and some of its...More

It is really worth climbing the High Castle to enjoy the beautiful view of Lviv from another angle. You can compare the old town with the socialistic blocks of flats.
