The World On My Doorstep

An ever-expanding postcard blog

Lviv

on March 8, 2014

postcards_4This fun card comes from Maryana in the Ukraine. If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times, I just LOVE Ukrainian stamps, they are always so jolly! I recently posted about Spanish Galicia, however, Lviv used to be the capital of the other Galicia – a geographical and historical area of Eastern Europe. With all the turmoil and suffering in Ukraine at the moment, I think it’s important to look at its rich history and beauty and Lviv certainly incorporates both of those. Situated in the west of the Ukraine, the city itself dates back to the 5th century and is now regarded as one of the country’s cultural centres and boasts a rich history. I hope I can visit one day!
