Officially, escorts in Lviv, or Lvov as the name goes in Russian, are doing an illegal job. Unofficially, prostitution it’s widely spread and tolerated. Most of the action happens online and escort directories are a good place to start. SexLviv (http://en.sexlviv.com/) is one of the more popular directory sites, including pictures, phone numbers and short descriptions of all the working girls that advertise there. Lvov Escorts (http://www.lvov24.com/) is a call girls agency in Lviv which has contracted eskort devushki (as escort girls are called in Russian) instead of random independent girls advertising on their website.
When browsing the local escort sites you will stumble upon many photo galleries portraying gorgeous girls in very glamorous settings. You get the impression that they are fashion and photo models and not escorts. And although such professions can go hand in hand, especially in the case of Ukrainian girls, you should be wary. I like it when I can see the face of a girl, which is the case on many sites advertising escorts in Lviv. Usually escorts will hide or blur their face and other distinctive features like tattoos on pictures. For obvious reasons because they don’t like to be recognized by family, friends or colleagues. When girls fully reveal their appearance, you should be even more careful. And that goes especially for the online escort business in Ukraine and Russia. In any case, use reverse image search options of search engines like Google, Yandex Search or the special search tool TinEye (https://tineye.com/). They can be of great help when you want to find out if the pictures are published elsewhere and maybe belong to someone else. Making a video call or requesting a selfie in advance could also contribute to a successful date.
Aside from the great looks of most of the escorts operating in Lviv, they are also super cheap. This is especially true if you compare it with the price level of escort girls in Kiev (Kyiv). You can get an hour with a freelance escort girl in Lvov for €30. Even VIP escorts have fees that start at $50 or $60.
You won’t find any brothels in Lviv that advertise online, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any. Just ask any taxi driver. He’ll be more than happy to lead you to one; cab drivers often get a cut from local “businessmen” for providing them with new clients. There used to be a red lights district in Lviv after WW2 in the Gospitalnaya street. Old habits die hard and it’s still crowded with street prostitutki, offering their services for as little as €15.
The much better looking working girls in Lviv look for their clients in hotel lobbies and popular bars. They approach people being all flirty and playful and then you end up with a €100 receipt. But it can be worth it, especially if they're cute young college students looking for some easy cash to pay the rent at the end of the month.
According to reports on online forums, the Grand Hotel lobby at 13, Svobody Avenue is quite infamous for being frequented by freelance working girls.
