  • The castle is beautiful. Despite the fact that after the earthquake there disappeared the water remained liqueurs. I liked the Mint. Unfortunately, all the try failed. Generally well done. Sorry, the State does not really care about the Castle.

  • Olesko Castle is in the village of Olesk near the road Kyiv-Lviv Evenly and stands on a hill, making it visible from afar as the road to the city and back. The castle dates back to the 13rd century and took part in important historical events, but unfortunately his time spared. Already in the 20 century, the Castle came in full decline and despite what outwardly his regained inner elements were decors irretrievably lost. In any case, the castle is worth a visit and at least inspect the outside (very nicely), and once inside you can see the Interior of different epochs and lots of pictures (Castle is a branch of the Lvov art gallery). Course guide will be able to tell a lot of the history of the Castle, but mostly you will have to constantly use the imagination. Through expensive from the castle is the former Capuchin monastery where you can go and visit the territory the current exhibition. The main part of the monastery closed. Ticket price is UAH 30 adult and 5 UAH for kids.

  • The scenery from it looks fabulous, the castle looks quite good. There is nothing much in it though. But it is worth walking around.
  • Beautiful historic place
  • Not a review, but a bit of history. My mother Maria was there before the war. She along with lots of other girls from neighbouring farms were chosen to be educated there. She learnt office skills and cooking etc. Not sure about the details. Just wondered if anyone else knew anything of this. She was there for about a year in 1938. When the war broke out she was one of the many sent to Siberia in February 1940.
  • Olesko is quite small but very historic for example as the birthplace of Polish King Jan Sobieski.
  • Very nice castle after being completely destroyed in the 1950's and earlier destruction by Russian army so there is not much architecture to see but lots of art which is very good. Not much english of course.
