About LvivThe Pearl of Europe

lviv national medical university
Lviv city

Lviv National Medical University is located in the city of Lviv, also known as “The Pearl of Europe”. Lviv has unforgettable architecture, exquisite art, and the warm hospitality of its inhabitants. More than 50% of all architectural monuments within Ukraine are located in Lviv. Strolling along its narrow streets you may feel as though you have travelled back to a Middle Ages or Late Renaissance city. The magic power of its history and rich cultural life attract many people to Lviv. The city is like a legendary museum under the sky, which gives inspiration to everyone who visits “The Pearl of Europe”. You can observe beautiful landscapes from the height of Vysokiy Zamok. The centre of the city is situated in the valley, long before the river Poltva ran through that territory. The city has important connections with different European Centers.
Lviv is the pre-eminent city of Western Ukraine – the cultural, political and economic centre of the West. The City of Lviv is the centre of the Lviv Region which contains 2.6 million inhabitants and covers an area of 21,800 square kilometres. The city is home to 850,000 residents and serves a daytime population of over a million people. Truly one of the jewels of
Eastern Europe, Lviv is a real open space museum graced by over 2,000 historical, architectural and cultural landmarks. Prince Danylo of Galicia, a former principality of Kyivan Rus founded the city in the middle of the thirteenth century (1256), and named after his son Lev.

Lviv quickly became the centre of trade and commerce for the region. The city’s favourable location on the crossroads of trade routes from the Black and Baltic Sea ports, Kyiv, Central and Western Europe led to its rapid economic development. Due to its geographic location and natural resources, the city was a constant attraction for strangers – Tartars, Germans, Hungarians, Poles, Lithuanians, Austrians and Swedes. Throughout the ages, conquerors have introduced into the city their traditions, cultures, religions and architecture – a mixture of gothic and baroque, renaissance and Romanesque, empire, rococo, eclectic modern and lapidary constructivism. Throughout its history, however, the living traditions of Ukrainian national culture have always been prominent in Lviv.
Lviv of today is a city where the past meets future. Historical streets are full of people hurrying to find their place in modern-day Europe. Heroes from monuments look down at the students visiting cafes, bars, and restaurants. Visitors to the city stroll through beautiful parks, relax in the hotels or prepare to see ‘Swan Lake’ at the Lviv Opera House, considered to be one of the most beautiful in all of Europe.
And when you arrive in Lviv, with a bit of luck, you will be able to see the spirit of olden days Lviv, which certainly hides in every corner of its ancient walls. You will also see this spirit in the eyes of the local citizens, who are in love with their most beautiful hometown.

Lviv has often been called second Babylon. Not only Ukrainians, but also Poles, Greeks, Germans, Serbs, Jews, Armenians, Italians, Scots, Tatars, Hungarians, Saracens, Karaims, and many other nationalities always inhabited the city.
