The Iron Lion is an annual festival where everyone can see with their own eyes the process of forging with the help of a furnace, hammer and a sledgehammer.

The art of blacksmithing is a tough craft, but extremely exciting, where seemingly crude metal converts into a refined product of applied art. The production and processing of metal on the territory of Ukraine has a long history. So it will be interesting for everyone to personally observe this complex process.

The Ukrainian outdoor blacksmith festival "The Iron Lion" has been held in Lviv for several years. The Iron Lion is an annual festival which aims to establish contacts between artists who work in the field of artistic metal, so men can exchange experience and promote blacksmith art in society.

The festival takes place in the fall at Arsenalna Square and involves blacksmiths from all over Ukraine. Every city resident and guest is able to see how the process of forging with the help of a furnace, hammer and sledgehammer looked like hundreds of years before.
