1 DAY: Transfer to the hotel. Accommodation in hotel 3*. Dinner in restaurant “Trout, bread and wine” which story began long time ago. A sad event happened in 1826 when the old Lviv City Hall collapsed. The only permanent residents of the City Hall were the trumpet player and his family. The ruins buried two soldiers, five workers and the trumpet player. Since then the trumpet player’s family left the City Hall and moved next to the house of the Lviv clockmaker in the Jewish area. It was close to the City Hall and safer. The municipal workers did not earn a lot, that’s why they had to do what they did the best they could in their free time. The clockmaker was a wine expert and also baked the best bread in the city. And the trumpet player baked the most delicious Carpathian river trout (pstruh is the Ukrainian Hutsul name for river trout).
2 DAY: Breakfast in the hotel. Guide meet you in the hotel.

The Restaurant transmits the atmosphere of the famous writer times, who was born in 1836 in Lviv.

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.
