    Eye on Ukraine

    Lviv a heart of Europe, a soul of Ukraine


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     "Once you come to Lviv you will not be able to escape from falling in love with it again and again," says Polat Kizildag of Ankara, Turkey. The city is different from virtually every other region in Ukraine and has a charming old town with a rich variety of "architecture, amazingly green parks and intriguing landmarks," he adds.

    For Ukraine Lviv has a profound meaning beyond being one of the host cities in Euro 2012 with its intriguing landmarks and stunning examples of architecture. It is remarkable how different is Lviv fom the other cities in Ukraine. The spirit of history seems still wandering along the narrow streets of Lviv. You can easily imagine a cart stopping by Opera Theatre and honoured guests wearing dinner jackets entering the greatest temple of art. Besides, Lviv has a charming old town that has been preserved since Austro-Hungarian times. So, mostly the old town of Lviv is under the auspices of UNESCO. Additionally, it was last year that the number of tourists who visited Lviv during summer was more than its own population. Once you come to Lviv you will not be able to escape from falling in love with it again and again.
