Lychakiv Cemetery was founded in 1786, and the oldest surviving tombstones of Lychakiv date back to 1787 and 1797. In the first half of the 19th century the cemetery was dominated by classical sculptures by such well-known masters as Hartmann Witwer, Anton and Johann Schimser, and Paul Oytele. Their traditions with the pronounced influence of the Western European sculptural school were continued in the second half of the century. Further sculptural trends enriched the cemetery with masterpieces of Eclecticism, Secession and Art Deco.

 If you turn left at the beginning of the main alley you will find yourself among the oldest and most beautiful entombments of the cemetery, with the largest number of the 19th-century artistic gravestones. Special attention is attracted by military burial sites: the cemetery of Polish insurgents of 1830-1831 and 1863-1864 and Orleta Memorial Cemetery opened in 2005 by presidents of Ukraine and Poland Yushchenko and Kwasniewski. The Poles who perished in Lviv in 1918-1920 are buried here. The Memorial of the Liberation Movement of the Ukrainian People with its column topped with the bronze figure of the Archistratigus Michael towers above the cemetery beside the common graves of victims of Stalin’s repressions of the 1940s.
