It’s time to visit polish kings and knights in old majestic castles of Lviv region. Olesko, Pidhirtsi and Zolochiv castles will open their doors for You.
These are different kind of castles, but there are hardly any castles in the world that went through such roller coaster transformations. From a royal residence to a hospital, vocational school for farming machinery mechanics, ghost-haunted ruins, museums, crumbling structures in perpetual state of restoration where cows and goats graze on once well-kept lawns.
Olesko Castle is an outstanding architectural and historic monument from the 13th - 18th centuries, once a strong fortress of old Rus in the 14th century. It was the birthplace of Polish kings, one of their residences, and later the possession of several famous Polish families. Pidhirtsi Castle was built in the late Renaissance style dating to 1635-1640. And Zolochiv Castle was built as a citadel with bastions in the 1630s.
