Looks like some shabby European city, but it is not. It’s what morning in Lviv, Ukraine, looks like.
Can someone please explain how much of anything interesting in Lwow was built Poles and how much by Ukrainians? That will finally determine whether Lwow is Polish or Ukrainian (current location notwithstanding). Just like Gdansk is really a German city.
Poland and also Lviv was a multicultural country and very tolerance: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_Poland_(1385-1569)#The_Golden_Age_of_the_Sixteenth_Century
Sorry but You need to read more, Gdansk is Slavic/Polish city !
ma city! going back in 2 weeks
Poland and also Lviv was a multicultural country and very tolerance:
place where time have stopped on 17.9.1939. sad.
Well, its not “like” in Europe, Lwow is in Europe – both geographically and in term of architecture.
Never been to Lvov but as a eager tourist I would like to see her one day. Mornings are perfect moments to get acquainted with true ambiance of every city, because in some cities other tourists and traffic chaos could overshadow some nice elements. I usually go out very early in the morning, order typical local breakfast and meanwhile watch citizens.
17.09.39 ? You know whay ? it’s sad but stop 01.09.39 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Soviet_invasion_of_Poland
Moscow is without honor !
Bitter Poles are always bitter.
Honour is for individuals. Politicians have neither morals, ethics nor honour!
As a part of Poland is (1349-1772)
As part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire (1772-1914)
Lviv is a beautiful city, I hope to visit there.
soviet/russian influence = destruction and stagnancy. unfortunately for the city ukrainian is not much different
Meanwhile American bomber is bringing democracy and prosperity to yet another country…
Looks like Old Montreal.
I am a Pole. I was in Lviv. This is a very nice city. Beautiful homes and a piece of the difficult history of Polish-Ukrainian border. Today, they live there, wonderful and hospitable people and beautiful women.
Good to know Ukraine and its cities is not part of Europe… wait a minute…
They need to replace more of the crappy Soviet era windows.
The polish history is visible in form of nice old buildings. The soviet history is also visible in form that this building are derelicted.
Ukraine and Poland are NOT in Europe??
Poland is in Europe, Ukrainian is not ! That how you understanding this is that who you are
( geography is not first here)
I don’t know who taught you geography, chemia but they did a poooooor job of it. Europe extends to the Ural Mountains.
Lol. Ukraine is in Europe, and not just in a geographical sense.
Shows how much understanding that you have.
“…Poland is in Europe, Ukrainian is not!…”. OMG… Another American that can’t read maps… Really, you’ll be surprised by the number of morons that write things like this here.
Not an American, though. A Pole. Enough said.
Comment made by Russian. Enough said…
That makes you feel real goof about yourself about yourself don’t you. BTW, whats the idea of posting a comment a month after anyone else has?! Scared of someone replying to you?! Lol.
This place is very poor. There is no beautiful poverty. The city is made worse by those ads, especially the giant beer banner (in english no less).
soviets destroy anything !
Pity they didn’t get you.
I don’t see anything so shabby about it, except for the grafitti in one photo. Old buildings look old, that’s all.
This is Europe, not like Europe…
So where is Ukraine if not in Europe? Australia?
in ass of moscow…
Butthurt Poles posting childish comments, thats new.
Typical Russian comment…
So original. Such creativity. But, seriously! Get your own lines.
I could live there, I love how there are no people on the streets, no crowd, no morons to look at
