In the courtyard of a house by Łyczakowska street in Lviv the mature voice of Zbigniew Herbert resounds. Is the return of the poet to his family town at all possible? The film is a walk through the streets and squares of Lviv following the footsteps of the author of Mr Cogito. Our guide in Lviv is Oleksandr Overchuk, a Ukrainian connected with Polish culture for many years. Sunny, Summer Lviv seems to be a city living it's own life, for which the history of nations is only an adventure.
Few weeks ago we've come back from a spontaneous trip trough the Western Part of Ukraine. After gathering together in the city centre after a beer or so , we decided that its enough to stay the whole summer in the city and decided to visit several of the most popular places in the western Ukraine, namely: Olesk, Zolochiv, Pidhirci Castles, also Fort in Tarakaniv village and a Pochaiv monastery. The Trip is budget, but those places are worth seeing!
The history of the city as bright and wonderful as the city itself, is full of interesting events and famous figures. Today Lviv for over 750 years and it's something to tell you. The city, which was founded at the intersection of trade routes profitable soon flourished and developed, becoming one of the major trading centers of medieval Europe. Later, moving the power of many European countries, including Poland, Austria, Germany and Russia, Lvov went through each of its invaders some part of culture and knowledge, eventually becoming not only on the architectural gem, but also the capital of modern scientific, spiritual and artistic life .
