Easter is a family holiday in Ukraine and Lviv is the best place to feel this atmosphere. It is only here that the family spirit is present in each temple, on every square and in each street where traditional Easter folklore celebrations, fairs, concerts and theater performances take place. World renown Ukrainian Easter eggs, embroidery, ceramics, decorations, woodcarvings attract the guests of the Easter Markets.
During the Easter celebrations, the annual ethnographic festival “A Great Gayivka (ritual round dances and games)” is held. A few weeks before its start there are master-classes in the painting of Ester eggs – the main symbol of the holiday.
Lvivites and visitors of the city can learn Ukrainian spring traditions and take part in the Easter celebration.
