Lviv, Lvov, Lwów, Lemberg, Lemberik

more than a year ago
Throughout its history, Lviv has had several names. The city was known as Lwów when the Poles ruled, the Austro-Hungarian Empire called it Lemberg and Jewish residents referred to it as Lemberik. Currently, many languages have their own spelling and pronunciation. This is the case with ‘Lviv’ (Ukrainian) and ‘Lvov’ (Russian). As the city immerged to become the centre of Ukrainian language and culture in the 1990s, the Ukrainian version became increasingly common and useful, i.e. using ‘Lviv’ while searching the Internet will definitely result in more hits.
