Lviv Undergrounds and Dungeons Tour

Tour description: Perfect tour for knowing Lviv better from undergrounds. And this is perfect tour for cold time. We are going to visit 5 Lviv's dungeons. We will start from Church's underground and will see ancient Lviv, then will visit pharmasy's museum, after "fired-coffee" in the underground cafe we will go to Dominican convent and will finish our tour in bunker. Most unusual attraction, a humorous stroll through intriguing subterranean of Lviv old town, starts in the center of the city and leads to the most cryptic dungeons of medieval churches of Lviv. These catacombs are full of mystical fiction and possess a sense of impressive ambiance of medieval history. The underground world of Lviv spreads for more than 100 kms. Many churches and monasteries have old underground labyrinths, formerly used as burial places or treasuries in the war times of the medieval past, often not even known to the local inhabitants. Many structures have been undertunneled for military purposes to hide not only military supplies but also the soldiers of all the different armies which invaded Lviv in the past 800 years. One of the most interesting attractions on the tour route is the Church of Jesuits and its hidden dungeons. There are some imposing frescoes of the XVII century, remains of the protective walls of the XVII century and thrilling engraved sarcophagus of the XVIII century over there. This sarcophagus drives a special attention of the tourists as it has a dislocated tomb stone. which means that someone tried to escape from this place. Most guides also tell the most horrifying legend about the ghost of the Black Monk who wanders over the Church territory looking for his soul. The dungeons of the Dominican Cathedral and the remains of the Prince Lev Castle that has been constructed in 1270 are another interesting highlight of this tour. The enigmatic atmosphere of the wooden galleries could be felt once you enter the Cathedral. The spacious room with a gibbet that was used for torments and tortures during the time of Holy Inquisition, makes us think of a variety of spooky and gruesome legends on unresting souls wandering over the dungeons of the Cathedral at night. The catacombs of the Pharmacy Museum is the place where Lviv alchemists are believed to conduct their experiments turning iron into gold and the dungeons of the Transfiguration Church are housing an impressive collection of fresco art. Discover Lviv’s mystifying underground world and listen to some spooky legends from city’s history.

Mezhyhirya is the residence of a former notorious Ukrainian president, Viktor Yanukovych. “Mezhyhirya” literally means “land between mountains.” And if you are visiting Kiev, then you should definitely see this place, it is well worth a visit.

The complex was operational from July 16, 1942, to March 15, 1944. It consisted of a telephone station, dining room, houses for officers, bunkers and other buildings. The Werwolf was a place where Hitler and other officers gathered to discuss the troops’ issues and develop the Generalplan Ost (German government’s plan). This place is near the city of Vinnitsia. Our second stop is checking-in in your 4 or 5-star hotel in Vinnitsia. After leaving your baggage at your accommodation and a little rest, we will have lunch and later go to the next interesting stops. Our third stop is Vinnitsia Water Tower. This 20th-century water tower is the official symbol of the city. Initially, it was conceived as the Vinnitsia water pipe, but during the Second Word War, it served as an observation place. Moreover, the Vinnytsia Water Tower was not destroyed during the war and still remains the tallest building in the city center—28 metres (92 feet) high. After all these touristic sights you will be just walking in your free time. In addition, I can show you some very unusually decorated cafés.

Lypki tour (Weeping widow’s House, Chocolate House, House with Chimeras,Ukrainian National bank

Tour description: The house of the “weeping widow” (sometimes called “Arshavsky House”) is a building in Kyiv, an architectural monument of local importance, situated at Liuteranska Street, 23 (the corner with Bankova Street). The building was constructed in the style of early modernism by the architect Eduard-Ferdinand Bradtman at the expense of the merchant Sergei Arshavsky in the summer of 1908. Chocolate House is one of the most mysterious mansions in our city. The building has been colored in the unusual way. The predominance of brown color gives the possibility to name the mansion as Chocolate House. Its story is similar to the story about the Gorodetsky’s House with Chimeras. No common people had been allowed to visit Chocolate House for fifteen years. In Soviet times the Central Civil Registration Office was situated there. The Polish architect Władysław Horodecki originally constructed the House with Chimaeras for use as his own upmarket apartment building during the period of 1901–1902. The name does not refer to the chimaera of mythology, but to an architectural style known as chimaera decoration in which animal figures are applied as decorative elements to a building. Horodecki unique architectural style earned him praise as the Antoni Gaudí of Kiev. The Kyiv office of the State Commercial Bank was founded half a century ago, in 1839. Later a large one-storey house built in Empire style in Institutskaya street was purchased for the Bank. Such architects as O.Kobelyev, P.Holandskyi and V.Gorodetskyi (the famous designer and owner of the Fancy House (1901-1903)) participated at the tender for the best design. The Kobelev's design was ackowledged as the best one and the work started. Later, architekt Verbytskyi, who designed the main facade, joined the group.
