    Philharmonia

    If classical music is your thing, let yourself be wooed by the sweet strains of Lviv's regional philharmonic orchestra. Things are very quiet here from July through to mid-September.

    Anturazh

    Hardcore nightclub with strict face control and dress code and a crowd of local footballers, businesspeople and the odd tourist who sneaked in. Some student and '90s nights.

    Teatr Zankovetskoy

    Built on the site of Lviv's erstwhile city defences, Lviv's second theatre was the third-largest building in central Lviv when completed in the mid-19th century. Today it hosts a mix of operettas and plays in Ukrainian only.

    Teatralni Kasy

    Advance tickets for the Solomiya Krushelnytska Lviv Theatre of Opera and Ballet as well as the Philharmonia are sold at the Teatralni Kasy. Prices for local performances are low by Western standards. Often closes over summer when the theatres take a break.
