Nataliya is my excellent, imformative and gracious guide here in L'viv.
We wander together in the City Center, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and then climb the hill for a panoramic view.
I am intrigued by an image of Christ atop the old Chapel of Boim. The figure is seated in a thoughtful pose that reminds me of "The Thinker," the Auguste Rodin sculpture. Is there any connection between the two?
I am especially saddened at the site and the ruins of the Golden Rose Synagogue. Also known as the Nachmanowicz Synagogue, it was the oldest Jewish place of worship in Ukraine. The synagogue was built in 1582 and was destroyed by the Nazis 1942.
