Pidhirtsi Castle (Ukrainian: Підгорецький замок; Polish: zamek w Podhorcach) is a residential castle-fortress located in the village of Pidhirtsi in Lviv Oblast (province) western Ukraine, located eighty kilometers east of Lviv. It was constructed by Guillaume Le Vasseur de Beauplan between 1635–1640 by order of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth's Grand Crown Hetman Stanisław Koniecpolski, on the place of the older fortress. The castle was then part of the Kingdom of Poland and it is regarded as the most valuable of palace-garden complexes in the eastern borderlands (Kresy Wschodnie) of the former Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.Plan your Pidhirtsi Castle visit and explore what else you can see and do in Pidhirtsi using our Pidhirtsi tour itinerary site.

Pidhirtsi Castle Reviews
Pidhirtsi castle it’s a stunning palace in a beautiful environment (And don’t forget the domed church, stunningly decorated with lovely frescoes and tromp-d’oeil inside). Unfortunately inside there... more »
Very large palace with splendid views of the inner courtyard. There is also a very beautiful view from the other side of the castle. more »
Waste of time to visit. The castle is run down and there's nothing inside, just prints of famous paintings. I don't know why we are charged an entrance fee because there is nothing to see. Some people commented about the great view around the castle. View, what view? Nothing spectecular as far as I could see, just the usual Ukraine countryside. By the way, the roads on the way there are really bad. Full of potholes. Be ready for a bumpy ride if you intend to visit.
Beautiful castle with breathing view. Well preserved but, unfortunately, seems like doesn't take proper care. Very good playground for taking photos in front of palace. Over the ally is amazing ancient church in roman catholic style.
