Lviv Location Guide is the first professional catalog of locations for filming in Lviv, Ukraine. It contains exhaustive information about the most attractive and unique places in Lviv that will surely inspire you to shoot in this amazing ancient city.

Why Lviv?

It is the largest city in Western Ukraine and one of the main cultural centres of the country. It is located approximately 70 km (43 miles) from the Polish border and 160 kilometers (99 miles) from the Carpathian Mountains. New city transport infrastructure, intricate architecture of different styles and periods (baroque, classic, modern, secession, etc.), hundreds of hotels, thousands of restaurants, and cafes make the city a comfortable location for filming.

“I was pleasantly surprised how well-kept, clean and lively the city is. At no point did I feel unsafe or unwelcome. I was also surprised by how big the city of Lviv is. It is, of course, important when you want to bring films here. The old town can easily double for Paris or Berlin in period films. The newer part of the city with its fantastic pieces of socialist modernism architecture would lend itself for shooting scenes that set in Moscow or St. Petersburg", — says Markus Bensch, location manager (A Hidden Life, Bridge of Spies, V for Vendetta, The Bourne Supremacy).

If you plan to make a film in Ukraine, you don’t have to worry about the production facilities and specialists. Here you can find a professional team at affordable prices. In addition, up to 30% cash rebates and VAT exemptions are available for foreign productions and co-productions.

Lviv Location Guide is developed by Ukrainian Motion Picture Association together with Association of Lviv Region with the support of the Lviv City Council under the ‘Focus on Culture’ program.
