As the European Championship approaches, everyone’s eyes in Europe are on the host nations, Poland and Ukraine. Of these two countries, Ukraine is by a long shot the slightest went by and surely understood. In any case, there is an abundance of lovely urban areas situated in Ukraine, particularly in the western region. At the bleeding edge of Ukraine’s eminence is the city of Lviv, found near the fringe with Poland.

Lviv has a rich history, having been under the control of the Polish Empire, Austrian Empire, and Russian Empire, alongside having Mongol and Tartar impact going back to the early years of the most recent thousand years. Subsequently of this social miscegenation, going by Lviv is like going to a mixture of European urban communities. The loftiness of the old city was spectacular to the point that the heart of Lviv was announced an UNESCO World Heritage Site, and has been conversationally named the Paris of Eastern Europe.

St. George’s Cathedral is the third church to stand at its present location, on a hill overlooking the city. Legend has it that the icon of the Virgin Mary found inside the church can create miracles.
