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
