Medzhybizh Castle (stone castle1540s, early wooden castle 1140s) is situated at the confluence of the Southern Bug and Buzhenka rivers. It used to be one of links in the chain of Polish fortresses built to restrain the Ottoman agression. The site is beautiful by its 'old-time fragrance', shaby walls, crumbling lime and faded paint. I'd dare to say that the... More

The view from the top of the fortress is very nice. There is also a small museum but none of the explanations are in English only Ukrainian. Worth the visit if you are there already but I would not go out of my way to see the fortress!

There have been fortresses here since the 12C and it has been rebuilt and remodeled over the centuries by its different owners becoming eventually a very impressive and solid fortress but under the Communist rule it suffered the indignation of being used as a milk processing factory. At the moment there is a lot of restoration work to be done.... More

We were here on a Monday morning and the old church, the hunger museum, and another museum were closed, which was disappointing. Otherwise, there is little to see within the tall stone walls. We did climb to the top of the highest tower, which gave a pretty view of the surrounding fields, river and village. The tower was unlit and... More

Medzhibozh castle was a major part of our velo tour we did with my spouse. The expectations from the castle exploration were a bit higher than the impressions we finally got. The castle from outside looks solid, unbeatable and very degensive. When you get in, you see lots of surrounding walls and buildings, those got to have good stories behind... More

When my friends had told me we were going to see the fortress at Medzhybizh I wasn’t expecting anything this large, but I was surprised at the sheer size of the place. It was magnificent. The fortress was built in the 1500’s as protection against the Tartars who at some point ended up conquering it. The different occupier’s mark can... More
