1 DAY: Transfer to the hotel. Accommodation in hotel 3*. Dinner in restaurant “House of legends”. A restaurant in your imagination only. It is a building of a chimney sweeper and his family where Lviv legends live. The chimney sweeper and his family members collect books about Lviv in their library, protect Lviv lions, watch the water level of the Poltva river and tally if someone has not stolen some old Austrian cobblestone. It is the place where Lviv time is officially protected: the clock hand must not run slow and the clock must keep perfect Lviv time. There is a necessity to clean some chimneys from time to time, so the chimney sweeper takes his car, parked on the rooftop, and passes easily Lviv traffic jams. At night, when the family falls asleep, Lviv smog protects Lviv legends from St. George Hill.
2 DAY: Breakfast in the hotel. Guide meet you in the hotel.

The question of choosing a profession is familiar to every person. Especially it is relevant for children, because the right choice depends on further life. It was not always so easy to choose yourself a profession.
During this excursion we will get back to the past, at a time when the profession was given from generation to generation and was an integral part of life. Probably you know people with the names Kushnir, Shvets, Gutnik, Stelmakh, Gurl, Koval. They all mean forgotten professions and crafts.
You will find out which professions were prestigious and highly paid in the medieval Lviv, which the old Lviv masters left behind in their tracks, how their lives and ways of life looked.
You’ll meet with real Lviv City Mayor, the man who lights lanterns, the postman, the chimney sweeper, the trumpet player, the clockmaker, and the executioner.
Dinner in restaurant museum Gas Lamp – Lviv brought to the world a gas lamp that later on became famous as “Viennese”. Jan Zech and Ignacy Lukasiewicz, the local pharmacists, invented it in 1853. The pub holds one of the biggest collections of gas lamps in Europe. This atmosphere of a real Lviv pub is added by explosions, flashes, smell of gas and rock music. A guide with a lit lantern will lead you up to the restaurant.
