Tour Details

Jews lived in Lviv from the time of its establishment in the mid-thirteenth century; some, mostly merchants, were Sephardic residents who later mingled with Ashkenazic immigrants. In the mid-fourteenth century, after its conquest by King Casimir III, the town permitted Jews to establish a quarter of their own within the walls of a new section built by the king. Two communities thus coexisted: the original and the center within the new walls—known as the Vorstadt (suburban) community.

The number of Jewish people in Lviv and big towns of Galicia just before the World War II contributed to 20-40% of their populations. Jewish has left an enormous trace in the culture and architecture of Western and Central Ukraine as, probably, nowhere in Eastern and Central Europe. Synagogues, which survived wars in Galician towns, like Drogobych, Brody, Stryj, Zhovkva and others are pearls of any excursion program over there. The medieval Renaissance Synagogue in King town Zhovkva was the biggest in Europe in 17 century! A famous Jewish national melody is often played on Ukrainian wedding parties (ask us which one!). Many Yiddish words were accepted by Ukrainian Language, and its Galician dialect.

When it comes to Jewish Heritage tour we can offer you a very interesting trip in Lviv and around Lviv region. Just book and go!
