You're reading: Lviv mayor hopes the city will lead in tourism, IT sector
Popular
on social media

He’s a regular client in a
downtown coffee house,
where he comes unguarded and sometimes accompanied by his large
family. He and
his wife Kateryna have five small children. The staff knows the
mayor’s
favorites (cappuccino and chocolate-topped cheesecake,
occasionally a macaroon).
He will order charlotte pie for the children.

When it comes to running
the city, his range of
competence is much wider. He will joke about the city’s logo to
say it’s the
coolest because it has five phallic symbols on it. But when he
has a guest smiling
and at ease, he will talk about strategy for the city’s
development, discuss local
challenges with passion and reflect on his personal limitations
and the future
of the nation.

More than a month after
hosting Euro 2012 football
matches, Lviv is still basking in the good press it got. Most
recently, The Economist
wrote a glowing piece
, calling it a “faded gem.”
