Home to the graves of soldiers, famous figures, nobles, and a host of ornate tombs, Lychakiv Cemetery stands as one of Ukraine's largest necropolises. Visit the massive cemetery, with more than 400,000 graves, and explore its 86 different plots spread out over 42 hectares (104 acres). You can join a guided tour in order to see a selection of the most notable graves and figures laid to rest here. Don't miss seeing the plot dedicated to the "Defenders of Lwow," an ornate memorial commemorating the efforts of Lviv's young Polish defenders during the Polish-Ukrainian War from 1918 to 1919. If you want to use a camera in the cemetery, you'll need to pay a small fee. Before you visit Lviv, use our trip planner to discover what you can do and see there.
