The Popov Castle is a castle-like rural residence built between 1864 and 1884 near the town of Vasylivka, Ukraine by Vasili Popov Jr. (a grandson of General Vasili Stepanovich Popov). Its Gothic Revival design is attributed to Nicholas Benois. The main house had a telescope, a picture gallery, and an ethnographic museum. The castle was looted by the Bolsheviks and ruined by the Germans in the Second World War. Restoration works did not start until the 1990s.

  • Went with friends on the way to the Zoo. Entrance fee 10 UAH, the museum itself was not impressed. say there are ekskurssiâ in the cellars of the Castle, but it must be booked in advance and if the man meet 6. The Castle and its impressive ruins, a great place for photo shoots.

  • The Castle, or rather what is left of it, is pretty interesting to see. It is a pity that lack of funding for its restoration, only enough money to maintain. Nevertheless, we advise you to come and see, you can take a guided tour. Inexpensive.
