Pidhirtsi Castle – one of the most beautiful castles / palaces in Lviv region. It has good fortification features, but its main function was a rest, what we can understand from the Latin inscription at the entrance.
Zolochiv Castle – one of the greatest monuments of Galician defensive architecture. It is located on a hill, for years actively performed defensive function. The castle stood lots of the Cossack, Turkish and Tatar attacks in the XVII century. Large and Chinese palaces with thick walls form an amazing Renaissance ensemble.
