This tour will give you a chance to uncover the secrets of the underground world and feel the enigmatic spirit of the dungeons, steeped in legends. The undergrounds of Lviv are several hundred km long, and you will be able to see the best of them with an expert guide.
Our first stop will be at the Church of Jesuits and its concealed dungeons. There you will discover the remnants of the defensive walls of the XIII century, the frescoes of the XVII century and another interesting exhibit – an XVIII century carved sarcophagus with a pushed-out wall that proves that somebody tried to climb out of it while being locked inside.
Strolling through the dark underground labyrinths of the Church of Jesuits, you will hear a chilling legend about the ghost of the Black Monk who is still wandering around these premises, looking for his sold soul.
The tour continues as you visit the mystical dungeons of the Dominican Cathedral and see the oldest premises of Lviv — the remnants of Prince Lev Castle erected in 1270. The impressive underground walls and wooden galleries still carry the spirit of history. You will see the thrilling hall with a gibbet used for the tortures in the medieval times. Your guide will explain you what kinds of executions were used at that time and how women were tested for witchcraft. You will discover a dwelling of a hermit monk and find out how patrons prayed for forgiveness.
Our tour also includes a visit of the undergrounds of the Pharmacy Museum – one of the oldest operating pharmacies in Europe. Then you will explore the enigmatic dungeons of the Transfiguration Church. Moreover, you will discover an amusing underground coffee mining in one of the Lviv coffee houses “Kopalnya Kavy”. The owners of this place claim to serve coffee, made from the cacao beans that are excavated right from the undergrounds of the restaurant.
