Drohobych in Lviv region. I like to go there when I want to "escape" and to think well about life, systematizing my thoughts. Don't know why, but exactly this city gives me a kind force of the positive mood in the future. And it's also strange for my character - to travel into the same place several times, because I usually go in the different cities and don't enjoy come back again and again to one place, besides my native Lviv, of course. But Drohobych is special. :)
