Some time ago, I wrote an article about the city that I love with all of my heart. The city that I called the soul of Ukraine - the gorgeous Lviv. There are a lot of reasons why you should visit Lviv. The incredible beauty of old streets, a warm atmosphere created by the locals, many historical monuments, as well as a variety of themed cafes and restaurants. Here, you can spend a whole week visiting interesting places and savoring Ukrainian cuisine. Kraft beers, alcoholic beverages with all the possible tastes, fried rice, dumplings, and borscht, what else could you wish for? But the special attention of the Lviv locals was given to sweets. They love to treat themselves with a delicious cheesecake or a chocolate cake while drinking an aromatic coffee. And where, if not in Lviv, you would be able to visit the 5-story chocolate shop? The Lviv Handmade Chocolate deserves to have an entire article about it - so let's discover this fabulous chocolate factory in the center of Lviv.
In the center of Lviv, located on the old Serbska Street 3, lies the house of sweet delights - Lviv Handmade Chocolate. The chocolate workshop has 5 floors and has beautiful terraces looking over the streets. Here, you can find an incredibly large selection of sweets for every taste. You can buy not only the original handmade candies but also various thematic statues and figures made out of chocolate. You can collect your unique box and pick your favorite sweets. It is not only a store, but also a cafe. Lay back in a comfortable chair and discover the delightful desserts, all while sipping your favorite drink.
Each square meter of this building is equally charming. Don't you just want to experience your very own Charlie and the Chocolate Factory moment? Every Lviv Handmade Chocolate visitor can become Charlie for a while and even prepare a delicious candy or make a chocolate sculpture by hand. To do this, you need to join a special express master class. In about an hour, you can become a real chocolate master. You will even be dressed in a special uniform. Upon "graduation", you will receive a certificate of the Master of Chocolate field. The sweets you have prepared will be packed and handed to you. Such a master class is held from Monday to Friday, starting at different times between 10:00 - 18:00 each day, for 30-45 minutes. In Lviv Handmade Chocolate, you can book a guided tour to find out all about the history of your favorite chocolate and make the most delicious sweets. A guided tour takes place daily from 10:00 to 17:00.
If you happen to be in Lviv on weekends, you should join the sweetest sale in town! Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, there is an unbelievable sale of sweets that lasts for only 15 minutes. The promotion lasts from 14:00 to 14:15, so make sure not to miss it. Naturally, the sale of sweets takes place in the house of Lviv Handmade Chocolate.
The history of the fabulous chocolate factory - Lviv Handmade Chocolate has started in Lviv, and the main workshop is there, but do not be disappointed if you have no opportunity to come to Lviv, you can still try its sweet delights. The products of the chocolate factory in Lviv can be found throughout the country. Think of it as a way of tourism, if the sweets are locally produced in Lviv, you will have the opportunity to taste the particles of our unique city, even without being here.
