Why Lviv? Actually, the answer is very simple if we use a holistic approach. There are dedicated and responsible software developers in this city. The culture – especially of the younger generation – resembles Danish, and at the same time you will find very competitive prices.
Ukrainian software developers take pride in keeping to agreements and doing a good job. In addition, they are very friendly and hospitable, always ready to help.
Lviv, located in western Ukraine and only 80 km away from the Polish border, is naturally oriented towards Europe. In the old days Lviv was the part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.
Lviv is a place where one can find not only an interesting mix of Austrian, Russian and Soviet architecture, but also western efficiency and customs. In Lviv, there are about 50 Danish companies and a large international community.
Ukraine was on everyone’s lips when the ex-President Viktor Yanukovych decided not to sign the association agreement with the EU in November 2013. This resulted in large demonstrations and subsequent unrest on Maidan Square in Kyiv, and later led to protest marches throughout Ukraine. In Lviv, there were demonstrations too, but all of them peaceful. Located 550 Km away from Kyiv and over 1,200 km away from the front in the east, Lviv kept the peace during the whole period, and after all the hardship of 2013 and early 2014 it has now returned to its usual life.
