Lviv, city of culture. Ukraine 2016

Recommended Posts

In fact the old USSR threw up some great architectural wonders despite looking very austere from outside.

Like Prague, Budapest, Lviv looks dark and haunting but really so beautiful when walking around. Great discovery, whetting my appetite and that's just the city, the women look like another reason for going.

I would imagine that those pretty buildings are pre Soviet architecture and I'm sure there will be fine examples of Brutalism elsewhere.

Absolutely, can't give the soviet era any credit at all for those buildings. Well I guess you could say they didn't destroy them :p.

Great report as usual Chris, thanks for posting.

You are correct of course as most of those lovely buildings would be pre 1922.

Most buildings are from the Austrian-Hungry period of rule/domination in this area, so dating from the 1700's and upwards.

Great pics. I was in Russia three times in the mid nineties; fascinating place. The history is interesting as are the people.
