One of the oldest towns in Halychyna, it doesn't attract a lot of tourists but also has its highlights. We offer to explore the Market square, the Church of St. Mykolai (1830), the synagogue (1886), the Roman Catholic Church of St. Nicholas (1882), a small museum of local history and one of the oldest Jewish cemeteries in Ukraine (XVI century). The Hero of Ukraine and the Heavenly Hundred Hero Bohdan Solchanyk, who was born in Staryi Sambir and who died on the Maidan Nezalezhnosti in 2014, is buried at the local cemetery.
Lavrivskyi Basilian monastery is one of the oldest and most respected in Ukraine (1270). It is most likely the burial place of Prince Lev, whose name has the city of Lviv. The monastery is located in a picturesque area in the middle of the Carpathians, with an unusual healing aura; the monastery church houses the relics of St. Onuphrius, and on the walls of the temple there are unique frescoes (XV-XVI centuries).
Among the beautiful fir and beech Carpathians, the tourists can admire the geological nature monument – the rock “Sokoliv Kamin” (Falcon Stone), the other names of which are also the “Spáskyi Kámin” (Spas Stone) or even “Chortiv Kamin” (“Devil's stone”). These are three stones - the remains of Yamna sandstone which rise above the trees and from a distance resemble the ruins of a castle, the highest of which is 25 meters. Not far from the stones on the local stream, you can see two small and picturesque Spas waterfalls.
