Drohobych

N 4921.077', E 2330.376'
2013-08-04
Our rating: 7.20
Overall rating:

Drohobych is the second largest city in the Lviv region. It's a beautiful ancient city with historic buildings, monuments and classic market square.

Drohobych very little positions itself as a tourist city, and it's very strange. The downtown is a nice place to stay on the weekend. The biggest Ukrainian resort Truskavets with 25,000 hotel beds is just 10 km away. Given that Truskavets has almost no historical buildings, it would be logical to put some regular interesting transport (a trolleybus or a tram) between Truskavets and Drohobych.

Tourism is not developed in the city. There are no souvenir shops, not many places to eat and even not easy to visit the City Hall. We came there on Sunday. The guard said that a visit to the City Hall tower is possible only after registration at the office #33, and only if we have 10 people! And of course the office doesn't work on weekends :) Well, the guard appeared to be a nice person, he gave us access to the tower and even refused to take compensation.

Market Square looks perfect. A typical classic square, just as you expect.

The historical center is not large, all attractions and beautiful houses are located around the Market Square. Most houses were built in the late 19th - early 20th century, during the oil boom. Yes, in the 19th century oil was found here. In 1866, the first petroleum refinery in central Europe was built in the city. And in 1872 the first train came to the town. Many luxury villas and houses appeared during that period.

Due to the oil boom up to a dozen universities, institutes and branches appeared in Drohobych, and it's quite unusual for a city of this size.

Right near the Market Square is the oldest building in the city, St. Bartholomew's Church. Its bell tower is a former defensive tower.

Near the bell tower stands a monument to the most significant city resident - Yuri Drohobych, author of the first Ukrainian printed book, first Russian doctor of medicine, dean of Krakow University and rector of Bologna University.

There's a huge abandoned synagogue in Drohobych. Before the war, about 13.5 thousand Jews used to live in the city and almost all of them were killed by the Nazis. Now the synagogue is being restored.

Getting there: We got there by the Kyiv - Truskavets train. You can take either a bus or a minibus from the Lviv bus station, or a local train. The train station is located quite far from the downtown, so take a minibus.
