  • Amazing castle! One of the best! Like all who love historical places, architecture and photography. It's a great fit for a photo shoot. Admission fee: 50 UAH for adults. You can go inside, but don't expect to see much: portraits and photographs of the castle's interior show the contrast between the old rich decoration and the modern bare walls.

  • PODGORECKI CASTLE - Podgortsy, Ukraine. On the site of today's castle there were more ancient fortifications, which are mentioned around 1530. From 1635 to 1640. the building was built, but soon, during the liberation war under the command of Bogdan Khmelnitsky, the castle was badly damaged. It began to be restored and continued restoration until 1680, and after 8 years it suffered again - this time from an attack by the Tatars. During the Soviet period, the castle housed a tuberculosis dispensary. Episodes of the Soviet films "D'Artagnan and the Three Musketeers" and "The Wild Hunt of King Stach" were filmed here. In 1997, the palace was transferred to the Lviv Gallery of Art.

  • Waste of time to visit. The castle is run down and there's nothing inside, just prints of famous paintings. I don't know why we are charged an entrance fee because there is nothing to see. Some people commented about the great view around the castle. View, what view? Nothing spectecular as far as I could see, just the usual Ukraine countryside. By the way, the roads on the way there are really bad. Full of potholes. Be ready for a bumpy ride if you intend to visit.
  • Beautiful castle with breathing view. Well preserved but, unfortunately, seems like doesn't take proper care. Very good playground for taking photos in front of palace. Over the ally is amazing ancient church in roman catholic style.
  • It's in pour conditions, beautiful sight view over the valley in front of it. Even so it's a place full of history the authorities don't know how to present it and make it a beautiful tourist destination!
  • Extraordinary place, genial atmosphere even if it's not possible to get inside.
  • Pidhirtsi Castle is a residential castle-fortress located in the village of Pidhirtsi in Lviv Oblast (province) western Ukraine, located eighty kilometers east of Lviv. It was constructed by Guillaume Le Vasseur de Beauplan between 1635–1640 by order of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth's Grand Crown Hetman Stanisław Koniecpolski, on the place of the older fortress. The castle was then part of the Kingdom of Poland and it is regarded as the most valuable of palace-garden complexes in the eastern borderlands (Kresy Wschodnie) of the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.
