  • What a beautiful place to reflect and wonder. I came here on a late summer day and didn’t regret it a single time. The way to arrive there through the medicine faculties is actually also quite beautiful. Unmissable experience for Lviv!
  • Great place to walk around and enjoy. Much quieter than the city centre. 40UAH entrance fee, you can pay by card.
