What qualities make a city into a creative place?

Rost Tatomyr, of the Lemko Bluegrass Band, explained to Lviv Now why Lviv is a good place to make music:

«Lviv is just a perfect place to make music because of its location, close to the EU border, close to Carpathian mountains, and because of its general multicultural specific. Mostly as a folk musician I really am found of all these different cultural influences and using both traditional and modern music we try to find out our own original sound.»
