The Mysteries of Underground Lviv


Lviv undergrounds are more than 700 years old and over 100 kilometers long.

The walls of the underground labyrinths remember the kings, monks, lovers, knights, ordinary citizens, hiding from wars, and rich Lviv people, burying their treasures underground.

Tombs, gold coins, antique furniture and weapons are still found there. They say that ghosts hang out in dark crypts.

Admire the main underground Lviv sights. Mysterious dungeons are waiting for you!

Most fascinating Lviv undergrounds:
Dungeons of the Dominican Monastery

Lviv


It is believed that the dungeons of the Dominican Monastery are the remains of the 13th century Prince Lev Castle.

Discover the monk cells and the torture hall; find out what torture methods Lviv people used in the Middle Ages and how they sought the witches.

Dungeons of the Jesuit monks

Lviv


The longest and most intricate Lviv dungeons are located under the Sts. Peter and Paul Church of the Jesuit Order. Some of them were once used as a crypt (burial place). The Jesuit College was there too.

In the dungeons, you will see the archbishop’s sarcophagus. According to the legend, the lid of the sarcophagus was moved off from the inside…

Dungeons of the Trinitarian Order

Lviv


The dungeons are located under the Transfiguration Church which was built on the site of the 18th century Trinitarian church. Nowadays, they are the largest known Lviv undergrounds.

Dungeons of the Opera House

There are not only dungeons, but also an underground river under the famous Lviv Opera House! The building stands on the former riverbed of the Poltva River (since the late 19th century). Learn the construction history of the Opera House, and see the river still flowing under the city.

At the end of our tour, we invite you to have a cup of coffee at the Kopalnia Kavy (Coffee Mine) café.The most interesting thing is that in Lviv coffee beans are not harvested from the coffee trees: they are mined underground. How can it be? Find out on our tour!

We did the beer tour in Kiev. Five beers in five different bars for two of us and our guide. That was a great chance to hang out with some locals, get to know the history and city a bit more, all while enjoying some of the unique local beers you can only find in Kiev. Our guide was very knowledgeable and great company and we had a fantastic evening! Highly recommended!

Highly recommend taking a tour with Wonders & Holidays. I learned so much about Ukrainian history that I wouldn't have on my own and the tour guides feel like friends (rather than just guides). I went on the Kiev in 180 minutes sightseeing tour with Igor and it was such a great experience. He was an excellent guide not only did he explain the history so well, but also answered any related or unrelated questions about Kiev and Ukraine. Both Igor and our driver Gestutas were so personable, accommodating, kind and professional - I hope I get the chance to go back again to take another tour with them.
