Lviv is the city, where petroleum lamp was actually invented. And this cute monument tells the story of how it was made. A very nice place to take a picture and to listen to the local legend.

Located in the Old town, this sculpture is the best excuse for you to rest a bit and enjoy some art. The meaning and the story behind its characters is interesting and curious.

Walking along Virmenska St is this monument dedicated to the creators of the kerosene lamp. The bar next to it has good beer or a coffee. I don't remember the name of it but it didn't impress me. Worth a picture for your memories.

Quite an ordinary place, but very popular aming tourists. Probably because of the thematic restaurant held upstairs

These two were the inventors of modern kerosene lamp. Lukasiewicz was the chemist and Zeh was a budinessman in petrol industry. Their monuments are originally involved in the "Gas Lamp" cafe exterior and now are one of the popular attractions in Lviv.
