    Stop At: Olesko Castle, Olesko Ukraine

    On a tour to the oldest Ukrainian castle (first mentioned in 1327), you will hear the amazing and mystical birth story of the Polish King Jan III Sobieski.

    You will hear a romantic legend about the ghosts of two lovers, who are still looking for each other, wandering along the dark corridors. Another story about the unlucky owner of the castle, who almost destroyed it while searching the treasure, will certainly amuse you.

    The galleries of the castle offers a wonderful view of the surrounding meadows, which has not changed for the past century.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Pidhirtsi Castle, Pidhirtsi 80660 Ukraine

    Pidhirtsi Castle is often called the “Polish Versailles”. No wonder that it “played the role” of the Louvre in the film adaptation of the “The Three Musketeers” novel by A. Dumas.

    The castle has its own mystical history. It houses the ghost of the White Lady who was the wife of one of its owners. The guide will tell you her sad story, and, perhaps, the Lady herself will appear for a few moments.

    There was a time when the castle was considered one of the best palace and castle complexes in Europe, and even now it is striking in its grandeur.

    Duration: 3 hours

    Stop At: Zolochiv Castle, Ul. Zamkovaya, 3, Zolochiv 80700 Ukraine

    A royal palace, a school, a court, and a prison – it’s all about Zolochiv Castle, which served for different purposes during its long and difficult history.

    Two wonderful Renaissance palaces served as the residence of Polish kings for a few centuries. And the Chinese Palace, the castle’s pearl, was built by Jan III for his beloved wife.

    After seeing them, do not deny the pleasure of strolling through the beautiful late Renaissance style garden.

    Duration: 3 hours
