Kamenet's Podolsky Castle, Kamianets-Podilskyi

Ruin Castle Must See
Explore one of Ukraine's seven wonders at Kamenet's Podolsky Castle, which served as the city's protective fortress in ancient times. Due to its strategic location (atop a cliff above the river), the site was a target for numerous invasions, and it changed owners several times, from Ruthenians to Lithuanians to Poles. Its prolific architectural design shows the influence of different cultures blended together. Tour the castle to see the remaining towers and walls. At times, local artists recreate events, sing, and dance at the site. You can also reserve a horseback ride throughout the citadel, learn how to mint a coin, or shoot a crossbow here.
