Dating back apparently to Kievan Rus for the first fortifications in town, this fortress was built by a Lithuanian prince. Later, it was operated by the Poles and the Turks. Once also a prison, the fortress is in remarkable shape. I like the Ukrainian government take care of this fortress as we drove simply to see it and the town... More

It's amazing place! Most grandiose castle in Ukraine I've been. Great ancient architecture, market of weapons, communicable guides. Advice to all)

the nicely restored medieval castle was one of the best of many terrific things I saw & did in k-p; I was scouting for a movie set (the movie didn't make it into active production, but this castle has rooted itself firmly in my imagination). don't stop with the castle, though: the cliff climbing in the gorge is great, the...

Quick one day visit to castle. It is such a beautiful backdrop and location along the river. I would recommend 3 days in the region to also stop by the stronghold in Hotin, Ukraine about 30 minutes away.

Passed near Kamenetz-Podolsk and drove to the fortress. This majestic fortress which captures your view from afar. Area is large and well appointed. There is a museum and cafe.

I've been there for couple of times with my friends it is better to come there on spring or summer time. This place has powerful history and very exciting look. I was glad to know there available english speaking guide but because of this tickets cost increase twice.

Impressive due to location and historical relevance. Inside some tourist attractions, it's an old castle not a palace.

I agree with previous rewievs: outside it looks better, especially beautiful in the sunset. Inside I expected more. As for facilities like toilet and cafee - they look very "soviet" and both are not good. I recommend to avoid them. Nice illumination in the evening, but we had to wait until full darkness for it to be switched. I reccomend... More

We've been in the Fortress in May, it's really great view. Although inside there are only some historical places left. There are few souvenir shops, cafe, shooting range. Can not say that I was impressed by this visit.

Suppose, Kamianets-Podilskyi Fortress is the best in Europe I have ever seen! (I have seen dozens of them in different countries of Central and Eastern Europe). It came from 14 century, and looks amazing, huge and old, built in beautiful river Smotrych canyon. Kamianets-Podilskyi city worth a lot to visit too. It is full of architecture, history and nature.
