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.

  • Were on excursions with a group of schoolchildren. The boys are ecstatic :) Together with the guide climbed all the towers. Remember the fortress about ten years ago - done a lot, restorers tried to glory. A very interesting story of the castle - how it changed hands. Every time you wonder - how can you build such a scheme in the Middle Ages !
