Zbarazh Castle is a fortified defense stronghold in Zbarazh, built during the times of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. It dominates the crests of the Zamkova Hills of Ternopil Oblast in Western Ukraine next to the city's central plaza that was not in so distant past surrounded by marshland. The castle existence has been credited to last members of the Polish Zbaraski family; Krzysztof and Jerzy Zbaraski.Evidence of the City of Zbarazh formation can be seen in the Ruthenia fortress dating back to 1211 that was positioned somewhat away from current castle. Today this is a village of Zbarazky District located in the immediate proximity of Zbarazh itself and called the Village of Stary Zbarazh. At that distant time the old castle and the province was ruled by Gediminids Landlords Zbarazky.The castle is known for being the seat of the Polish aristocratic Wiśniowiecki family and its prominent members, most notably Jeremi Wiśniowiecki.Prior to 1939, the castle complex was located in its founding nation, Poland.Early Zbarazh CastleThe Zbarazky landlords erected a primeval wooden fortress in the town which nowadays is called Stary Zbaraż, a quarter mile away from their own mansion. Soon after it was incinerated during a skirmish with the tatars. All the fortification's protectors, including Vasyl Nesvizky, the grandson of Theodore Kaributas, were killed on the burning battleground. Another castle was constructed in the same location using the same materials, and its end was enacted in the same deadly way. It was set on fire during a nomadic attack in the year of 1589 while Janusz Zbarski commanded the stronghold. Later in the beginning of the 17th century, his son decided to build a masonry structure in the new location receiving guidance from Western European architects.

    Certainly less stately than other locks, however, with a great story and cool interiors. Surrounded by a nice Park

    No historic value of the castle is not responsible. The castle was completely destroyed. What data he was inside and outside No. Therefore, what we vydim-fantasies from modern builders. There is no "spirit" of the present Castle, which has kept its secrets and history. Plastic Dummies. Dear, good, but nothing more. Do a couple of pictures will be able to. The territory clean, well-groomed.
