The long history of L’viv is complicated and bloody.
Settled as early as the 5th Century, L’viv has been invaded and occupied and settled by Tartars, Poles, Swedes, Hungarians, Turks, Austrians, Czechs, Germans and Russians. Before the War, Jews made up 30% of the local population.
The varied cultures have left their mark on this now colorful and photogenic city.
