The Day of Lviv

The Day of Lviv

(In 2018, on May 5)

The Day of Lviv is celebrated on the first Saturday in May, although there were times when the holiday tolerated. For example, several years ago, celebrating the 750th anniversary (first mentioned in 1256) Lviv was held in late September, and in 2007 the Day of Lviv and the St. George's Day (the patron of the city) were combined and celebrated on May 6. But what remains the same is the careful design of the program and the preparation of Lviv to the holiday. Every year they invent something new, but the program always includes a large-scale parades, concerts, sporting events and festivals. Traditionally, the celebration begins in the Market Square, and then continues in the Park of Bogdan Khmelnitsky and in the major museums of the city.

Feature of the city is not only the fact that it is one of the richest in the city's historical monuments of Ukraine, but also the fact that it is one of the few cities of our country which has never been renamed. The official version of Lviv’s title is the next: it is named in honor of Leo Galician by his father, Daniel.
