St. George's CathedralLviv, Ukraine
4.8 / 8
St. George's Cathedral is a must-see attraction in Lviv. The cathedral is so beautiful that visitors often use the photos they took as wallpaper. Located just a 20-minute walk from the city center, it is easily accessible for tourists. The cathedral is a magnificent sight, enchanting visitors with its baroque-rococo style and authentic sculptures on the facade. Inside, visitors can explore the nice crypt downstairs and find pretty souvenirs to take home. The surroundings of St. George's Cathedral are also great, with plenty of parks and restaurants nearby. Unlike other tourist spots in Lviv, there aren't many tourists around, allowing visitors to freely explore the complex. However, the lack of English signage makes it less foreigner friendly. Despite this, the cathedral is worth a visit, especially for those interested in its unique architectural style. Constructed between 1744 and 1760, it holds historical significance as one of the most important churches in Lviv. The beauty of the cathedral is further enhanced by its twilight ambiance. Although the area around the cathedral may be dirty, it is important to respect the sacredness of the place for some people. The best part is that visiting St. George's Cathedral is free of charge, making it an affordable and enjoyable experience for all.
