The legend remains in the past: a popular restaurant was closed in Lviv
The well-known four-story restaurant "House of Legends" was closed in the center of Lviv because of the refusal of the owner of the house to continue the lease. This establishment really became a city legend. It attracted tourists not only with the kitchen and the famous Lviv tinctures, but also with the general concept, atmosphere, interior and exterior. Visitors especially enjoyed the observation deck on the roof of the house, as well as a daily evening light show on the front of the building. The owner of the restaurant hinted that "House of Legends" may appear in a new place.

Natural park for protection of virgin forests
And in the end – good news from outside the city. In the Turkivsky district of the Lviv region, in order to preserve unique virgin forests, a national nature park "Boykivshchyna" will be created. By creating new national natural parks, Ukraine is gradually approaching the standards of the European Union, where about 15-18% of the territories have the status of protected areas. At present in Ukraine this figure is only about 7%. By the way, the objects of the World Eco-Nature Emerald Network will enter the future park. The Emerald Network is a set of specially protected areas in Europe and in some African countries.
