Incredible scenery, the territory is nice and clean, very friendly personnel, it is both great to sit on the lower slope of the castle and to walk in the building itself.
Great castle, unfortunately, there's no way of getting inside as it was burnt down at some point in time. There's a legend of it being haunted, it'll cost 10 hryvnia to go in the basement and see 'the lady in white' and the alchemy lab.

Huge castle in 17th century style with lots of history. No interiors can be seen at this point but the grandeur of the exterior and old photos of the interior indicate how great it was in its day. Today it is a crumbling yet majestic mammoth, still nobel with all its decay.
