Excursion to Lychakiv Cemetery

Prohibition to bury people in the center of Lviv in the end of XVIII c. assisted to expansion of Lychakiv cemetery, which turned into one of the largest and most interesting cemeteries in the world. Visitors from different states come here to have a walk along the alleys of the cemetery, to see almost 300 thousand burials and to reflect upon the sense of our life. We start our tour from 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. Then we move along Pekarska Street, where in medieval times lived the richest representatives of Bakers Guild. Today here stand buildings of two universities: the Medical University and the Veterinary University. Austrian Emperor visited Lviv on the occasion of the opening of Medical University in XVIII century. And here we are at Lychakiv cemetery. Here a lot of famous personalities found their last rest. Among them is writer Ivan Franko, opera singer Solomia Krushelnytska, composer and singer Volodymyr Ivasyuk, multiple champion of the Olympic Games Viktor Chukarin. Their graves as if induce us to think: how are we going to live our life?

Excursion lasts 2 hours.
