Kamenet's Podolsky Castle, Kamianets-Podilskyi

Ruin Castle Must See
Explore one of Ukraine's seven wonders at Kamenet's Podolsky Castle, which served as the city's protective fortress in ancient times. Due to its strategic location (atop a cliff above the river), the site was a target for numerous invasions, and it changed owners several times, from Ruthenians to Lithuanians to Poles. Its prolific architectural design shows the influence of different cultures blended together. Tour the castle to see the remaining towers and walls. At times, local artists recreate events, sing, and dance at the site. You can also reserve a horseback ride throughout the citadel, learn how to mint a coin, or shoot a crossbow here. Put Kamenet's Podolsky Castle into our Kamianets-Podilskyi road trip app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • On a lovely hillside stands the stately Castle. Each trip stops at the viewpoint, to photograph the landscape. With the Castle terraces have views of the hilly Kamianets-Podilskyi. The view is breathtaking. The entry price to the castle is 30 UAH (adult; 20 UAH-for pupils and students). The Castle does not have too many sites, however, you can go after the walls, look at the Museum of the exhibition (which are subject to additional fees) and Ukrainian food. A trip worth it.

  • Due to the fact that most locks up 8 Ukraine is in terrible condition, this looks fantastic. Although in the middle there is not too much to explore you definitely need to come here. The same position of the Castle offers a super view

  • Day on the territory of the fortress is open kitchen on fire-you can eat: grilled meats, vegetables, soups, rolls of clay oven. Many beautiful species, especially in the evening. There is a bar on site, but the cocktails there are mediocre. Excursions are inexpensive, quite interesting to listen to the history of the city. Souvenir shops available.
