The Carpathians

In addition to housing the tourist office and the museum, Frankivsk's art-deco town hall, the only one built in this style in the country, is an attraction in itself. Sitting right in the middle of the Rynok, you can now climb the 122 steps of the building's octagonal tower for quite impressive views of all of the city's sights. Look out for the huge, circular, Soviet-era market building to the north.
