  • The castle's rich history, but the deplorable present. The restorers still work and work, but what they do is impressive.

  • Castle shows moments of magnificence of these lands. Unfortunately, now destroyed. A modest Museum downright poor, but it is interesting to see that the support had a seizure. Be sure to visit the Church of the tomb of Stanisław Żółkiewski in the basement (a priest without problems opens), destroyed the synagogue and the Church of the Holy Trinity (Church of my mind HIT). Visit the Zhovkva.

  • Once the great symbol of wealth. Now the ruins. Are there any plans for the renovation but for now it's only plans, the roof was mentioned the rest as it was 50 years ago.

  • The "ideal city" and its castle are very interesting locations! The castle interior has a couple of curious (albeit small) expositions, all of which are accessible through a token fee. Of particular note is the WWI/interbellum exposition - history buffs will be very satisfied.
  • I liked the castle! I liked town and history of the castle, and castle guides too! The tickets costs a little, but I advise to order personnal guide. There are English- and Polish- speaker guides here. And they will talk you many interesting detailes about object. The castle is repareing now and consuming a lot of budjet money. I think we'll learn to spend budjet money more productive. There were so many visitors when I have been to here! I reccomend this castle everyone!
  • The Zhovkva Castle occupies the principal square of the town of Zhovkva in Ukraine. It was founded by Polish Hetman Stanisław Żółkiewski as his fortified residence. Construction began in 1594 and was mostly completed in 1606. In the 17th century King John III turned Zholkovsky castle in one of the most beautiful palaces in Europe, making it his summer residence. Of famous guests Palace visited Ivan Mazepa and the emperor Peter I.
  • One wing of the castle renovated with little museum, nicely presenting history of the city and castle . Headings in English
  • When fully restored will be an amazing place to see.
