Situated in the western part of Ukraine, Lviv, the “City of Lions”, is its heart and soul. Founded in
the 13th c. by King Danylo Halytckyj, it was named in honor of his son Lev (Leo). Through
centuries of Polish, Austrian and Soviet occupation, Lviv was the gateway to “the East”, but with
independence in 1991, Lviv is finally free to develop its own Ukrainian identity.
