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.

The first stop should be at the Turkish Bridge both in the morning when the fortress stands out in the sun and at night when it is illuminated by lights. There is a lookout area here which was popular with wedding groups having their photos taken and looking to your right are the spires of one of the Greek Orthodox... More

The fortress is located on the rock surrounded by Smotrych river. It is an example of perfect use of natural relief. It is worth to see Las Vegas like castle illumination during night. Luckily daylight is much more favourable. Beware of guys with eagles - negotiate the price before taking photos.

There are several building . Our guide explained them to us . There were several fascinating display, like the one of medieval devices of defending the castle . There were vendors in the castle . Their prices were high. The stairs to some display were very treacherous . And they could do with more lighting on the exhibits.
