Lviv

While not as well-known as Kiev or Odessa, Lviv is gaining in popularity as a tourist destination in the Ukraine. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the centre of town is possibly the least Soviet-looking city in the Ukraine, with beautiful cupola-topped churches and plenty of museums. Visitors in Lviv can take in an opera or ballet at the S. Krushelnytska Opera House, or take in a match at the Ukraina Stadium (which will host games in the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship). The city centre is compact enough to explore on foot, although public transport in Lviv is efficient and cheap.
