Lviv is in Western Ukraine. The biggest city of the region and major Ukrainian cultural center. The historic city center is on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
The city has a multicultural history. Lviv is located in the most Ukrainian region of Ukraine; people tend to refuse to speak Russian here and are deeply patriotic as opposed to the still deeply russified east of Ukraine. Because of its Polish and Austrian history, Lviv has a Central European flair in its architecture that make it one of the most beautiful cities in Eastern Europe. Its tourist potential is yet undiscovered because infrastructure is rather undeveloped and most people don't speak any foreign languages except Russian and Polish. Nevertheless, visiting Lviv is very rewarding for the pioneer traveller, as life is extremely cheap here and the place has a truly authentic feeling.
