Lviv marked the annual Ukrainian Independence Day holiday this August with a series of colourful events that began well before the August 24 holiday and ran on for days! The highlight of the festivities was Oleh Skrypka’s ethno festival, which delighted Lviv’s growing legions of devotees to this hip folk style.
Other highlights included an international carnival which saw representatives from all over the world performing and parting on the streets of the West Ukrainian capital.
