Walls of Lviv Region
Here is the Olesko Castle, standing on a hill and visible even from the Kyiv-Chop highway. It was built by Yurii I Lvovych, son of Galicia-Volhynia prince Yurii I Lvovych, and was first mentioned in 1327. The castle was often attacked, changed, and rebuilt as they tried to capture it or give it a Renaissance charm.
Another castle is Zolochiv. Do not confuse the Chinese pavilion with the palace because it is only an additional decorative structure—it is now the Museum of Oriental Cultures. The castle itself is two stories, standing next to it. Built like a fortress, fortified with ramparts, ramparts, and bastions, it has a moat in front and a bridge over it. The castle itself has portals, a secret passage, and toilets with an ancient sewage system. And in the yard there is a large stone block with a cryptogram and a hole—if you twist your finger, they say, the stone will make your wish come true.
And the castle itself was built in the 17th century by the Italian architect Andrea del Acqua, and the bastion fortifications were added by the French engineer Guillaume de Beauplan. Formerly, all the rooms were divided thematically and by color: gold, green, mosaic, and crimson halls. The original marble portals are still preserved.
