Unfortunately many wonderful abandoned places do not have any respect or attention. But maybe it makes them even more enchanting. Podgoretsky castle is often called the “Ukrainian Versailles”. It is unique because of its architecture – Renaissance style and heavy bastilles. The complex of the castle consists of a three-storey castle itself, Italian park, inn and entrance gates. It used to be one of the best palace complexes in Europe.
Probably the history of the castle dates back to the twelfth century when not far from Podgortsy village was an ancient settlement with a fortification nearby.
