Sometimes there’s just something about a city that makes you fall in love with it. This was the case with Lviv!
I loved walking around this Ukrainian city and seeing its faded beauty in the historic buildings dating from the 1700s-early 1900s. I wanted to take pictures of all the interesting architectural elements – doorways, windows and rooftops. I was enchanted!
And I did take tons of photos – 500 in fact! However, I finally narrowed the number down to about 350, so thought I simply share some more photos from Lviv.
Again, hopefully my photos will inspire you to travel to Lviv and enjoy it as much as we did!

The Citadel Inn, located in Fort II, was built by the Austrian government in 1850-1856 to defend the eastern ways to the Lviv Citadel. Today, the citadel features a boutique hotel and restaurant and offers great views over the city. Unfortunately, it was cloudy on the day we visited.
