  • It was the residence of King Jan Sobieski. You enter a bridge once drawbridge and after passing through a covered patio where there are cannons you will reach a large garden with fountain in the middle and front the Chinese palace, color pink, built in that style since the East at that time was MOD can be seen a there there is an exhibition of Chinese art. To the right of this garden is a restored with a museum Palace. This place in 1941 was used as a prison by the Bolsheviks. Inside the Museum there are furniture, weapons, the room of the King, the Queen, the hunters with their heads of stuffed animals, a dining room for royalty, etc.

  • Beautiful place, top open very scenic views. Inside a beautiful park, two Museum exhibition. Basically collected quite situational. There are several original really antique items. However, the exhibition comprise a replica. Watch medieval Cannon, note that in those days there were no screws;). Preferably, visiting in good weather because, really beautiful. Entrance fee, but the tickets are cheap. From the interesting-there are quite mysterious stones with cryptic inscriptions. Can try to uncover the historical Riddle yourself. Cons to Karma following Castle-in 1941 year here was the prison of the NKVD. During the retreat of all prisoners were shot. And then the Germans came and shot the Jews. On the territory of the Memorial signs have been installed. If you go by car, it is not recommend using the road Lviv-Kyiv-exactly. After the collapse, with excellent roads, you will about 20 km of horror on the pits and potholes to Zolochiv. However, neat and you can go in the daytime. I recommend picking up from the road Lviv-Ternopil, it has recently been renovated and currently in perfect condition.

  • Unlike Podgoreckogo and Svirzhskogo castles in Zolochiv is a cultural-historical compositions, not just walls. Yes, and the status of the lock as noticeably better and the variety of architectural styles. By the way, in the Zolochiv recommend café-bar cmachnoj cuisine "Rolex" on vulice budinok kryvonosa 3! Such a delicious mushroom soup not tried even in Lviv. Everything else is also very tasty-dumplings, dumplings, Borsch, uzvar. And the portions are huge. This is a real home Ukrainian cuisine!

  • It's a interesting place to see, unfortunately you can only see the outside. No entry is permitted inside the castle.
  • There are a couple of interesting expositions in the castle and adjacent buildings. The castle does not look like a "castle", more like a villa. The territory is neat and clean, you can walk around in a beautiful park with oriental elements. Or climb high hills and look around the castle.
  • Monument of Polish History. In 1592, Marek Sobieski , the king Jan III's Sobieski grandfather, bought the wooden castle, land and Złoczów (now Zolochiv), from the noble Polish Gorka family, earlier owned by Sienienski and Zborowski families. The new castle with marvelous fortress was built in 1634-36 by Jakub Sobieski, father of the king Jan III. The castle destroyed in various wars was rebuilt by the king Jan III. After king's death (1696) the castle was inherited by his sons Konstanty and Jakub. -------------------------------------------------------------------- The site of martyrology of thousands of Jews, Ukrainians and Poles murdered by the Soviet NKWD and Nazi Germans. --------------------------------------------------------------------
