Lesya Kurbasa str. 8,
Lviv has an international airport just 7km from the beautiful downtown.
The easiest way to get to L'viv from Western Europe is through Krakow (or Wroclaw/Katowice) in Poland. From there, you have several options.
* Take a train to Przemyśl near the Polish-Ukrainian border. It costs about 40 PLN and takes between 3 and 4 hours. From Przemysl you take a bus to the border ('granitsa' in Polish) for 2 PLN, walk through the checkpoint and take another bus (Marshrootka) to L'viv. When you exit the final border control, walk straight ahead and you will come out on to a street which cars use to cross back in to Poland. Follow this street up past the shops and money exchanges, and take your first left. About 50 meters down on the left hand side is the new bus terminal where buses run regularly to Lviv for approximately 15 UAH (2 USD). Get your ticket from the driver.
The total cost for this route is approximately 12 Euro and maybe less if you have a student card.
