  • The castle on the territory of a military unit, but diligently restored the Citadel, the military gradually transferred from the territory of the fortress. In the Citadel there are museums and open observation deck. Worth a visit, but there is still a long period of restoration.

  • Nice place to spend some time and explore new part of history of this town and this fortress.
  • Really nice touristic spot, one of the few of the area. For sure is worth a visit!
  • Historical fortress, recently renovated. Well worth the visit while in Transnistria located between Ukraine and Moldova. Around €3 entrance fee. Great views of surrounding area. Gift shop on location. Security are a bit sceptical of foreigners but photos are allowed.
  • Awesome castle, excellent interactivity, friendly staff. Take me back to bender!
  • The territory contains an old abandon factory, church and military unit. The fortress is quite boring.
