Benzinovka is a signature Lviv drink with a strange name, that sometimes misleads inexperienced travelers.
Lviv is known for its unusual gastronomic solutions. Benzinovka is a popular strong alcohol beverage, which, despite the somewhat frightening name (derivative from "petrol"), travelers try almost in the first place. And it`s a right decision, because there is not drop of petrol in the benzinovka — only vodka, cinnamon and apple juice. The combination of sweetness, strength and bitterness gives an unusual taste. The original drink presentation and atmosphere of the Lviv taverns will complement the impression.
How to do?
1. Go to Rynok Square and knock at the inconspicuous door of the house number 14.
2. Sit down at a table in one of the halls of the tavern "Kryivka", decorated in the style of UPA fighters` dugout.
3. Get a drink in a soldier's mug.
