Litmapping

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.

  5. The Lviv Department of The Ukrainian Women’s Union
Address:
Ivan Franko St., 15, Lviv
Description:
The Ukrainian Women’s Union is the largest women’s organization in Galicia, created in Lviv in 1917 for raising the educational and economic level of women and their participation in the global women’s movement. The organization’s anthem was written by one of the The First Wreath participants, Ulyana Kravchenko. Ulyana Kravchenko (Julia Schneider, 1860–1947) is a figure who, despite her undeniable talent, was in the shadow of another well-known person, her teacher, Ivan Franko. From young age, the girl behaved independently, studied law on her own, traveled independently, and this often confused the small town where she lived. Later he decided to combine teaching with the writer’s specialty and can be considered one of the most prolific writers in Western Ukraine.
