L’viv city

Lviv is a regional centre in Ukraine, one of its largest, oldest, and most beautiful cities. This administrative centre of the western region of Ukraine is situated in the picturesque foothills of the Carpathian Mountains that form a natural division between the Bug and the Dniester Rivers. The old part of the city was founded at the High Castle in the middle of the 13th century (1256). Lviv is an ancient town. We find the earliest records of its existence in the Galitsk-Volynsky chronicle of 1256. It was founded by Danilo Galytsky, an outstanding figure of ancient Rus. Danilo Galitsky, built the castle-fortress and named the city after his son Leo. Danilo Galitskiy struggled with the Rus enemies. His name stands as high as the names of Yaroslav Mudriy, Volodimir Monomah, and Olex-andr Nevskiy. He did his best to unite The Kiyiv Rus in the struggle with Mongolian and Tatar tribes. He showed the whole world the possibility of successful struggle against oppressors. The city played a great role in defending the western borders.

For more than five centuries the Western Ukrainian region including ancient Lviv, remained under Polish and Austro-Hun-garian rule. Thanks to its favorable position on one of the busiest trade routes connecting the Baltic and the Black Seas, Lviv soon became an important commercial centre, a tempting prize for foreign invaders. In its long history it has survived forty fires and thirty wars. In 1648 the troops of B. Khmelnitsky who led the liberation movement of Ukrainian people, together with Maxim Krivonis, liberated the city. The Polish nobility was unable to destroy the national culture of the Ukrainian people and a lot of the people remained true to their native language. Lviv is a city of longstanding cultural traditions. Many famous writers, artists and public, and political figures such as M. Shash-kevich, I. Franko, S. Tudor lived and worked there at different times. Lviv has now become a big industrial, scientific and cultural centre of Ukraine. Goods bearing the trademark of Lviv enterprises are well known in many countries of the world. Very popular are the local television sets, automatic loaders, agricultural machines and buses. Lviv is still proud of its skillful brewers, confectioners, and glass blowers.

Lviv’s Art Gallery is one of the best in the country. It contains masterpieces by Rubens, Titian, and Goya, as well as works by Ukrainian and Russian artists. Lviv has many beautiful parks and gardens. Stryisky park is one of the best, not only in Lviv, but in Europe, as well.

A lot of names of Ukrainian towns and cities are connected with the names of their national heroes such as Ivan Sirko, Olexa Dovbush, and Ustym Karmaliuk. The Ukrainian people remember their heroes. There are a lot of songs and legends about them, and they appear in the novels of Shevchenko, Marko Vovchok, and Panas Mirny.
