Just as Moscow has the "Golden Circle" tour of monasteries outside the city, Lviv has its own “Golden Horseshoe” tour of nearby castles.

It is a relatively small memorial considering the magnitude of loss, but it was well looked after, it's garden fringed with marigolds and hostas in bloom. It was nice to see the plaques covered in fresh wreaths - a sign that some have not forgotten (in contrast to what seemed to have been forgotten in Lithuania).
