Lviv’s Yard of Lost Toys

Liviv, located in Ukraine, is the home to a makeshift museum consisting of old toys. In one of Lviv’s oldest neighbourhoods, Mukachivska, there is a shrine to childhood toys that have been left behind. This shrine started when a resident of Mukachivska, found a couple of discarded toys and decided to place them in the shared courtyard of the apartment block. They had hoped that whoever owned the toys would be back to retrieve them. However, they never did come back for the toys and over the forthcoming years, more and more discarded toys were added to the shrine. The collection is ever expanding, with some owners coming back to retrieve their forgotten belongings.
