Virtual tour of UNESCO sites in Lviv region created.

A virtual tour "Ukrainian pearls of UNESCO World Heritage in Lviv region" was created in the region as part of the celebration of the 30th anniversary of the country's independence.

"Creating 360° tours allows showing sites worth visiting as we have something to show and something to be proud of. We worked on view both outside and inside the sites. You can visit these attractions from your computer. You can watch in detail all the paintings, each beam, feel the stained glass lighting. The technology is rather simple and can cover other attractions, so this is just the beginning," said one of the project managers, Yuri Prepodobny, the press service of the Lviv Regional State Administration informs.

The tour includes several monuments: the St. George Church in Drohobych, the Holy Trinity Church in Zhovkva, the Blessed Virgin Church in the village of Matkiv, the Holy Spirit Church in the village of Potelych.

"One of the ideas was to create a 360° tour that can be viewed from anywhere on the planet. The history of the Ukrainian people is centuries-old, and the preservation of our monuments deserves the attention of contemporaries. Honoring the memory of our pearls should unite all those interested so that our young people can see and enjoy them," Olha Kotovska, Administration’s Education and Science Department Deputy Director, said during the presentation.

The virtual tour is available here.

As reported, Ukraine works closely with the UNESCO World Heritage Centre under the Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage, ratified by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine in 1988.

The UNESCO World Heritage List includes seven Ukrainian cultural and natural sites: Ancient City of Tauric Chersonese and its Chora; Saint-Sophia Cathedral and Related Monastic Buildings, Kyiv-Pechersk Lavra; Ensemble of the Historic Centre of Lviv; Residence of Bukovinian and Dalmatian Metropolitans (currently – the building of the Yuriy Fedkovych Chernivtsi National University); Struve Geodetic Arc; Wooden Tserkvas of the Carpathian Region in Poland and Ukraine; Ancient and Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and Other Regions of Europe.
