During our time there, we checked out the main square, the church of the assumption, the art museum and palace, the main cemetary, and the town's skanzen. The skanzen, filled with old, sometimes run-down, buildings was pretty neat to get lost in, and it felt like we almost did quite literally at one point!
Another major highlight for us was the old pharmacy museum, located behind a functioning pharmacy in the main square
Lastly, we also watched the recently released Pixar film Up, for only 2 euros! You don't need to understand Russian to tell it's a mediocre picture.
We managed to find a great cafeteria-style eatery, where we spent three dinners sampling random Ukrainian dishes, such as perogies (including cherry-filled perogies!), kvas (like a non-alcoholic malt), traditional soups (red and green) and Kiev chicken, which bursts with butter when you break through the bready crust!
On our way back into Poland, we were lucky to be placed in the same cabin together, despite having separate room reservations. At first the conductor wanted us to bribe him for it, but then was kind enough to let us bunk together.
