A little out of the way down some very rocky roads is this castle. The wooden castle is long gone but it was built on top of very impressive rocks in the hills. It is 52hr to enter. It is a pleasant walk up to the rocks, with information boards (including in English). There is also a water spring to visit. Very fun and enjoyable!

Had an Amazing day here! Travelled to Tustan... Previously home to a medieval castle that was built with wooden walls (likely with clay cladding) in which the wooden spars were embedded at their ends into the jagged rocks on top of an escarpment. Amazing engineering for the time. If you dowload the TUStaN APP, you can see how it looked back in the day from certain defined vantage points on the premises. You just point your camera in the direction of the castle rocks and voila... a virtual reality version of the old castle appears. Quite cool. The climb to the top had stairs with a railing most of the time but may limit individuals with mobility issues. On this site a Medieval Festival has run this weekend in July for 30 years straight. They take it seriously... Building a wooden castle, a battering ram and a freaking catapult! Rival forces are picked with one defending and one storming the castle. Our visit didn't coincide with this weekend but I think that would be a blast to see! The tourist amenities are basically in a stage of development right now but there are kiosks where you can eat and buy some souvenirs. I would suggest looking into getting a tour guide as ours significantly enhanced our experience.

In the summer of 2016, I and my family rested in Skhidnytsya. The incredibly beautiful nature of the Carpathians gives rest to your soul and body. Clean air, available mineral water sources will allow you to gain health. One day we went to Tustan fortress.Tustan is located near the village of Urych.The Urych rocks are 55 million years old. During the 9th-16th centuries, there was a town on rocks – Tustan fortress. This strategic point of the Carpathian defensive line was a combined customs, administrative and military center.The tour was very interesting. I recommend everyone to visit this place. I want to rest here again.

This location becomes a real-life decoration for a medieval festival "Tustan" every August. Fantastic nature, mountains, local cuisine and drinks on the festival. Great emotions!
