In their efforts to boost Lviv’s growing tourist appeal, the city’s ever inventive City Council team likes nothing better than to dream up a public holiday or reinstate an ancient local custom. One of the most popular recent additions to the already crowded
Lviv holiday calendar has been Chocolate Day, which features a wide range of street-level sweet-toothed fun and is timed to run over the closest weekend to the traditional International Women’s Day holiday in early March. This year’s festivities stretched over
3 days and featured chocolate sculpture art and mountains of delicious chocolate of every variety and description. The highlight was the Chocolate Ball held on March 8 at Lviv’s imposing House of Scientists, where guest of honour Ukrainian dance maestro
Grigory Chapkis entertained the audience with his elegant antics.
