I cannot find XLV web part. Is it included in SharePoint 2010 by default or should be activated/added manually? What web part category should it be placed in?

When you add a list through "Lists And Libraries" you actually add a XSLTListViewWebPart.
The same if you choose "Page Tools -> Insert -> Existing Lists".

It is by default scoped to current SPWeb, if you want to create a web part of it you should be able to manually create a .webpart-file that points to a specific list (even on a different SPWeb).

You can also make your own web part and aggregate it, like this:

var listViewWebPart = new Microsoft.SharePoint.WebPartPages.XsltListViewWebPart
        ListId = myList.ID

Many thanks! I've got another question. After i've added a list on the page (XLV wp) I can select View from list's views. But if I modify xslt for list's view it is not updated for web part view. Is it OK? – Serhiy Sep 4 '12 at 6:53
I've updated one column to be bold in the list's view. Then I opened a page added list (Page Tools -> Insert -> Existing Lists) then opened Web Part settings and selected customized view as 'Selected View'. After appying this change nothing happpened. The text in this column is not bold. – Serhiy Sep 4 '12 at 6:55
