The first were the sun, and were used by the ancient Greeks in 1459 BC. Now they are at a certain house "Seasons", where the god Chronos keeps track of time. Lviv residents for more than six centuries, to find out the exact time, look in the direction of the Market Square, where the Old Town Clock. In the 15th century they had a bell, weighing over one hundred kilograms. Remodel them three times. Who is the Town Hall clock - grandfather, which are more than one hundred and sixty years, and they were brought from Vienna.
There is a clock that shows the time of Lviv.
Are they on the facade of a seven-storey House of legends. Lviv Time difference is that it is behind Kiev for twenty-four minutes.
Every evening at nine o'clock or 21:24 Kyiv time tourists gather in the house to watch the battle of Lviv hours. It was at this time, the dragon starts spewing flames from the mouth, and on the front of the tram goes from one stop to another, and then - back.
The clock in the bell tower of the monastery for five minutes in a hurry always. Thus, in Lviv we decided to perpetuate the memory of the monk who saved the city from the invasion of enemies. As the bell tower, he saw the approaching enemy army and sent to watch five minutes ahead. The ringing bells woke the guards, and they had time to close the gate.
