Winter Holidays in Lviv

December 2019

 

Christmas Lviv is a special atmosphere.

The ancient traditions of Ukrainians are preserved here, but at the same time they are constantly inventing something new, unusual and modern.

 

Every year everyone can find interesting activities during the holiday period.

 

  • Everyone, from the youngest to the oldest, can skate on Rynоk Square.
  • Everyone can take part in the opening of the city Christmas tree in front of the Opera House for St. Mikolays Day.
  • From December 14th to December 22th, every kid will be able to visit St. Mikolays' Residence at the Christmas Market and receive small gifts.
  • When the main fairground of the city has a Christmas Market, Lviv begins to feel the true atmosphere of Christmas and New Year holidays. Market immediately sets the tone for the holiday - the aromas of street delicacies are scattered throughout the center, bright lights attract both tourists and locals alike, you will not buy anywhere else for such gifts for loved ones as here, only from December 13th until January 19th. Hence, everyone can visit one of the interactive workshops near the main Christmas tree of the city - and find a master class to their liking. The highlight of this year is real loom. It will be used to make Hutsul wool loungers, and everyone will be able to watch it!

 

Not every region of Ukraine treats Christmas as it does in Lviv, so traditions are not kept everywhere. That is why the organizers of the Market invite everyone to the main Christmas tree on January 6 - there will be a Holy Dinner in Lviv, where you can not only visit the traditional 12 dishes, but also sing carols. Real Ukrainian Christmas in Lviv 2020!
