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.

  • The fortress is simply mesmerizing! Immediately to mind movies of childhood "Ivanhoe" ballad, "Robin Hood". As if in a fairy tale and stops time.

  • Very nice old town, many not renovated architecture, but the greatness of the fortress and beauty careers is fascinating. Here is best visited during the warm season, as it is possible to spend a lot of time outdoors walking along old streets.

  • Probably the most beautiful castle (Fortress) in Ukraine. And types of adjacent neighborhoods beautiful! Illuminated evening looks great! It may be particularly attractive to visit during the festivals.
