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.

Lesia Ukrainka St., Lviv

Lesia Ukrainka (Larysa Kosach-Kvitka, 1871–1913) is one of the most prominent figures of Ukrainian literature. In her writings, she reconsidered the foundations of European culture from the point of view of women, in particular in a dramatic form. The important place in Lessya Ukrainka’s works was the rethinking of Christianity and the secondary role of a woman in it. This topic goes through the works Rufin and Priscilla, Martian, the Advocate, and The Possessed, which is often called the Maryam Gospel.
