this is my workflow, I have Sharepoint site and subsites and lists on there, this workflow belongs to one of the subsite so in workflow I only reach lists which is on this subsite, and my question is if there is some way to get lists on whole Sharepoint site. (test in picture is one of the list on subsite)

Whether you open subsite in SharePoint Designer and create this workflow?

If that’s the case, we are not able to get top-level site lists in a subsite workflow.

As a workaround, you can use SharePoint 2013 workflow platform and use “Call Http web service” action to get top-level site lists via rest api.

Here are some reference:
