L'viv excursions Around region excursions Galician towns
Austrian Quarters of Lviv
Intense petroleum production in Galician region contributed to the development of Lviv as a capital of this region. In Lviv appeared new road junctions, beautiful theatres, refined palaces, educational establishments, nice dwelling houses. But all this was the product of hard work of the workers in petroleum mines and factories. We start our tour Lviv National Opera and Ballet Theatre named after Solomia Krushelnytska which is the beautiful adornment of the city. The building of Maria Zankovetska Drama Theatre which stands across the street for some period was the largest theatre building in Europe. We also see the building of Lviv National Museum named after Andrey Sheptytsky. We walk along the central Freedom Avenue, under its surface the river Poltva flows.
We will visit the Pototsky Palace, which reminds refined palaces with its architecture and impressiveness.
