The Challenge 

Since the independence in 1991, car ownership in Ukraine increased significantly. But in 2012 there were still only 220 motor vehicles per 1000 inhabitants, excluding motorcycles and other two wheeled vehicles, compared to 580 in Poland or 588 in Germany. Although the figure for Lviv is no doubt far above the Ukrainian average, traffic in the city will become denser in future. Furthermore, the UNESCO World Heritage Site will attract more visitors when tourists are longer deterred by political insecurities. Today already, the traffic situation in central Lviv is difficult. With a rise in traffic expected, this situation will become intolerable and jeopardize every effort to capitalize on the city’s history and heritage.
Cars, in general, slow down public transport and when they are not moving. Looking at the city center, it is obvious that parking takes away valuable space for public and private transport as well as for pedestrians. In most of the European cities with a comparable historical center, let alone UNESCO Heritage Sites, cars are banned altogether in the center. This is true for the central part of Lviv’s World Heritage Site too, at least in theory. In reality, many cars circulate or are parked in this area. However, this historical center of high urban value and exquisite buildings is not confined to the UNESCO Site.
