History in stone

The Carpathian region is famous for its history sleeping in the ancient walls of the castles, fortresses, monasteries and hiding in the chimerical sculptures and castle ghosts.

Mongolian-Tatar attacks and wars did many harms to the great buildings, many of which are still under reconstruction. Most of strongholds can be found on the territory of the Lviv, Ternopil and Transcarpathian regions.

Fortifications, high walls, banks and bell towers are typical for all castles. On the base of some of them the museums of local lore, historical museums, galleries open for everyday visiting have been created. The medieval palaces and fortresses become the places for historical shooting and knight's tournaments.
