18 Castle At Sunset

Castle At Sunset

Posted on February 24, 2011 by team


Kamyanets-Podilsky is a Ukrainian town of major historical importance. Its "Old Town" is situated on a rocky island that is washed by a river in a deep canyon. The island is connected with the "big land" with a narrow neck of land where a marvellous castle was built.

The castle was rebuilt that is why the towers are different.

    You forgot to mention that this is a polish fort from the 16th century, built on top of an ancient castle.

    I saw this castle in the calendar with pictures of Lithuanian castles that were built in time of Grand Duchy of Lithuania and now are outside modern borders. The castle looks awsome :)

    Beautiful place. Thanks for showing it.

    Yes, a great place to visit. And 15-20 minutes by car away there is another castle worthy to be visited, Khotyn, near Dnister river.

    It is weird to me that Ukraine hasn’t been “touristified” yet. Such great sights and all you’ll see is some old ladies and a couple of souvenir shops. And no serious attempt to advertise this place and bring visitors (call me income) to this region. On the other hand, you can still feel the taste of the genuine, untouched ukrainian countryside.

    Polish guys should grow up – the original castle was built by Ukrainian princes in 13th century. Nuff with your “small nationality” complexes :)

      Norman, which version of Wikipedia have you read?
      I think you have problem with polish language used above.
      In 13th century: “In 1241, it [Kamianets-Podilskyi] was destroyed by the Mongol Tatar invaders.”

      • Balodis says:

        I’m sorry, quotation was too short.
        “In 1241, it was destroyed by the Mongol Tatar invaders. In 1352, it was annexed by the Polish King Casimir III, and became the capital of Podole Voivodship and the seat of local civil and military administration.[4] The ancient castle was reconstructed and substantially expanded by the Polish kings [..].”

        I’m sorry, quotation was too short.
        “Modern Kamianets-Podilskyi was first mentioned in 1062 as a town of the Kievan Rus’ state. In 1241, it was destroyed by the Mongol Tatar invaders. In 1352, it was annexed by the Polish King Casimir III, and became the capital of Podole Voivodship and the seat of local civil and military administration. The ancient castle was reconstructed and substantially expanded by the Polish kings [..]”
