The literary map is another opportunity to meet famous people who wrote their works and promoted literature in Lviv. The map opens up new and brings back forgotten names of writers and publishers who lived in or were somehow associated with our city. The map brings together places where one can borrow, buy, read or write a book. It features the most significant locations of the literary life in Lviv, monuments to authors and literary characters, thematic museums, bookstores, libraries and coffee shops.

NB! This map only projects part of literary Lviv. That's only the start of rich story, that should be described in at least couple of books.

Rynok Sq., 10, Lviv, Ukraine
Lviv Coffee Mine is the longest coffee shop-book store in Ukraine, created over a coffee mine on Rynok Square. Lviv has been associated with coffee for a long time, and Lviv Coffee Mine is an example of a legend about Lviv coffee.
In this building, books were sold since 1906: at first there was a bookshop of Taras Shevchenko Scientific Society, and after the Second World War the bookstore No. 19 of the regional book sale (Oblknygotorg) was opened, which subsequently began to sell scientific and technical literature and existed until the beginning of the 2000s.
