Lviv, Ukraine

It was my last journey before moving to Spain, and instead of saving money for that, I decided to spend it all on that journey. The route included a quick tour of Romania, Moldova and Ukraine. We were six friends from different countries who met each other a year before in a summer school in Madrid. I have to say that to us, the region seemed a bit exotic even though half of us belonged to the ‘Eastern European bloc’. And while people were beginning to explore Romania, Moldova, and to a lesser extent Ukraine, were not that touristic.

I heard many stories about the region, one of them that it was rather poor. Well that was partially true. While Kiev looked like a city booming with business, Lviv did appear to us like a place stuck in time. The arrival in Lviv wasn’t a glorious one. The bus from Kiev left us in the periphery from where we had to take a minibus to the center. The neighborhood looked pretty devastated and somebody even tried to rob one of my friends. The impression of the city center was quite different though.
