good morning, my name is … and I’m a student of the 9th form. I would like to tell you about my last visit to the museum.
My family and I spent a few days during my spring holidays in Lviv. I had been dreaming of this trip for solong, because a friend of mine who lived in Lviv in his childhood, had told me a lot of excitingthings about the city.
The city was named after the son of prince Danilo ofGalicia, Leo and is a brilliant example of the Gothic and Renessainse Architecture. It boast the famous Lvivcoffee and pastry that you can taste at any of numerous cozy cafes.
We visited a lot of interesting places there and LvivHistoryMuseum was one of the mostmemorable. It’s one of the oldest and richest Ukrainian museums. It was founded in 1893 and comprises more than 320,000 artifacts connected with Ancient Rus and Middle Ages in Galicia.
The Museum’s major collections include works of art and old coins, orders and medals, arms and weapons. No wonder that one building couldn’t house the collection, so the museums buildings include houses #4, 6, 24 on Rynok Square.
The magnificent architecture of the 16-18th centuries charms the visitors even without the treasures stored inside. And, when you start observing the Museum’s collections, you lose all sense of time. The numerous exhibitions tell about the activities of prince Danylo of Galicia, the fight led by Hetman Bohdan Khmelnitsky, other historical events in Galicia.
In my opinion, the most interesting items are exhibited in the Town Arsenal. There you can see the collection of arms and weapons dated back to 13-20th centuries from more that 40 countries. The "Flying Hussars” collection is the richest in the world.
Another Museums attraction is the collection of the 18th century furniture, china, silverwear and clocks preserved and shown in the Royal Chamber on Rynok Square.
The most I liked the manuscript of "Khrystynopilsky Apostle” of the 12th century and the order of Andrey Pervozvanny.
Looking back to my reflections of this tripI think that we are really happy to live in the country so rich in history and culture.

Moving to a new flat is always a great and exciting event. As a rule, new buildings are situated in new residential areas with all necessary infrastructure, like schools, kindergartens, supermarkets, children playgrounds, sports grounds and parking places. Modern flats usually have convenient layout, they are spacious, comfortable, fully equipped with modern conveniences, such as electricity, running cold and hot water, central heating, sometimes satellite or cable TV, they also have elevators and rubbish chute.
On the other hand, you can face some unpleasant problems starting your life in a new flat. Most of people begin to reconstruct, redesign and redecorate their new dwelling. As a result, their neighbours have to listen to the constant knocking and humming and other noise. Construction waste and rubbish are stuck in the rubbish chute and piled in the yard. . According to the law, construction operations which produce much noise, must be done only from 10 p.m. to 10 a.m. However, trying to finish the work as soon as possible, many workers start their work as early as 7 or even 6 o’clock and finish late at night. Of course, it is hard to study or have a rest in such a situation. According to the law, construction operations which produce much noise, must be done only from to
Besides, some new residential areas are situated rather far from the downtown and community transport can become another problem. As a rule, there are few bus or trolleybus routes there and you will have to get sed to getting up earlier, than before. Of course, sooner or later all these disadvantages will disappear, and you’ll enjoy living in a new apartment. As people say, "There is no place like home”
