Kamenet's Podolsky Castle, Kamianets-Podilskyi

Must see · Ruin · Castle
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. PutKamenet's Podolsky Castle into our Kamianets-Podilskyi road trip app and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Kam'yanets-Podolski is a great town but it would not be the same without its castle. We booked a hotel that offered a view of the castle. As the sun was setting we got one of the most amazing sights.....  more »
  • Liked it very much, but as usual in this country, you will find a lot of people who behave like an idiot. Want to come here again in few years.  more »
