Home to the graves of soldiers, famous figures, nobles, and a host of ornate tombs, Lychakiv Cemetery stands as one of Ukraine's largest necropolises.

You can join a guided tour in order to see a selection of the most notable graves and figures laid to rest here. Don't miss seeing the plot dedicated to the "Defenders of Lwow," an ornate memorial commemorating the efforts of Lviv's young Polish defenders during the Polish-Ukrainian War from 1918 to 1919.

  • Great "ZEN" place. Very peaceful to walk - I especially suggest to do it in summer on a work day closer to the closing times, less people to see, so you are almost on your own to wander and observe monuments and discover interesting things.
  • Awe inspiring place.. it’s a very large place and requires atleast couple of hours to go around. Beautifully created head pieces on most resting places.
