Bizarre travel for wordies

I’ve always loved the Ukrainian city of L’viv (or L’vov, as Russians call it). It was the first city outside the US that I spent considerable time in, and its cobblestone streets and Parisian architecture are enchanting.

L’viv got creative recently and installed what might be the world’s biggest crossword puzzle.

This 10-story apartment building has a crossword that’s blank by day but the answers appear at night. Clues to the crossword are found at various locations throughout the city, and, as you might expect in the center of Ukranian nationalism, the crossword is in, you guessed it – Ukrainian.
