Often called the “Little Paris of Ukraine,” Lviv is a city in Western Ukraine that is world famous for its beautiful architecture, magnificent churches, and its culture that is highly devoted to music and the arts. Considered by many to be highly westernized — for a former member of the Soviet Union — Lviv is a great destination for travelers who are looking to explore deeper into Eastern Europe and the formerly soviet countries.
Sharing a Western border with Poland, Ukraine and Poland have been deeply intertwined for centuries. Since the 12th century, the borders of both Ukraine and Poland have been constantly shifting during a steady procession of wars, including World War II, which ended with Ukraine becoming a part of the Soviet Union — leaving it behind the iron curtain and cutting its beauty off from much of the world until only recently.
