Spontaneous and one-day trip to Ternopil, at the invitation of our friends, left its impressions.
At the end of July 2017, we visited Ternopil, knowing in advance what to eat, decided to use public transport.
At 8.40 in the morning we boarded the train, the journey began. This agonizing three-hour trip in a dirty, hot and crowded train did not lift our spirits. A little tired of this trip, We all the same arrived in Ternopil. It was pleasant that we were already waited and with attention reacted to the desire to have a bite.
In 10 minutes walk from the station was probably the best restaurant in Ternopol, "Old Mill". We Lvivans, who saw many restaurants, were impressed by the beauty, elegance of the restaurant "Old Mlin". The restaurant was twice visited by the "Inspector", as evidenced by the plaques posted at the entrance. Struck toilet, sofa in it, ears and toothpicks in the toilet, everywhere the inscriptions - and all in the old style. We chose a table on the second floor, the menu was small and characterized the status of the institution, made an order and continued the tour of the restaurant. On the third floor was a beautifully made sushi bar, but the draft that walked on the floor did not allow us to stay there for a long time. They returned to the second floor. We brought the ordered. Small portions at an inflated price confused us, an ordinary green salad (which is made at home in 10 minutes in huge quantities), drastically watered with sunflower oil, did not impress at all, for the second zrazy and something like pies with liver and a thin piece of meat with Egg. Everything, as in an ordinary canteen. I want to come to the restaurant and marvel at the skill of the cook, but this did not happen, moreover, as soon as they ate salads, the menu was immediately taken away, it might have been decided that we would not order more. We left the restaurant with a feeling of easy hunger.
To smooth out the impression we were led on foot along Ternopil, the chaotic nature of the building, the old and new buildings, the spontaneous markets and the mass of flamboyant advertisement were striking.
Finally, we reached the embankment. Well done Ternopal residents, we made the right recreation area, we liked it. The lake is fenced, but some spans are removed, benches for fishermen and lovers are installed, there is a walking steamer, fountains, beautiful. The whole embankment is tiled, bicycle paths, places for entertainment, everything is fine.
The beginning is getting dark, and we, confident that through Ternopil trains pass almost every hour to Lviv, moved to the station. At the station, we were disappointed, the nearest train was at 2.40 am. They sat down on armchairs in the station hall and OY - horror, crowds of cockroaches appeared from under the armchairs.
We ran out of the room and abruptly began looking for a ride on BlaBlaCar. We were lucky, tired, impressed by recent events, left for Lviv. Everywhere is good - in Lviv is better.
