Easter celebrations

Issue 110, March 2018.
Easter is an especially festive time of year in Lviv, which has long been a city where the wide range of religious identities present in our population have more of a reason to celebrate. Lviv has always been a crossroads where the historic empires of the Orthodox and Christian churches have met, but given the diverse ethnic makeup of ancient Lviv, Easter has traditionally been a time of year when different denominations have been conciliatory as they celebrate the miracle of resurrection according to their own beliefs. In Ukraine, Easter is called Velykden (Great Day) and is the Ukrainian Orthodox Church’s most important holiday.
