The city itself is frequently called 'the open-air museum'. The varied heritage led to remarkable mix of Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance architecture. More than 50% of all architectural monuments in Ukraine are located in Lviv/Lvov. No wonder that on November of 1998 the city was officially included to the UNESCO List of World Monuments of Architecture.

Note that besides its Ukrainian name, Lviv is also known by several other names in different languages: Polish: Lwow; German: Lemberg, Russian: Lvov. After Ukraine became independent in 1991, the Ukrainian version became much more common so using Lviv while searching the Internet will result in many more hits.
