    Ah, Western Ukraine. Such an alien place. Just like Poland.

    Lviv is great, I was there two weeks ago and it’s all in all a very authentic city with nice people (once you get to know them a bit) and always busy. Even in the middle of the day people are in the cafes, restaurants and others. Check inyourpocket.com for a great guide if you want to visit.

    It’s big luck for the world culture heritage that the “red storm” in the 1920’s didn’t hit so hard the western region and these great monuments escaped vandalism and destruction, so we can enjoy them today.

    Great shots, but this website needs to properly size the images before uploading them. They take forever to load!

    My town!!! I was born in 1974 in Lvov and the “Soviets” have maintained it in perfect condition.

    Beautiful city with an ugly history. Unbelievable that the Ukrainians collaborated with the Nazis when the Germans entered the city. Records show that German soldiers were even surprised by the viciousneed of the local population in rounding up the Jews during the pograms.

      You better do some further reading on your Soviet history. Read up on the Holodomor of the 20’s and 30’s. The Ukrainians suffered more and had more of their people killed by the communists than the Nazis killed the Jews.

      Get it into your head that the Jews are only a small part of WWII.

    Why does the picture #7 from the bottom) show a Lada on the roof of an old building? How was the Lada lifted up there? The photo URL is http://media.englishrussia.com/newpictures/bloscity007-42.jpg
