Pidgoretsky Castle was built in the 17th century and is an example of Renaissance-era architecture that’s one part imposing palace and one part fortifications. Today the castle is part of the Lviv Art Gallery and a resort that includes an 18th-century wayside inn and a cathedral. Together with Olesky and Zolochivsky castles, Pidgoretsky Castle forms the “The Golden Horseshoe of Ukraine” – a popular castle tour of Lviv Region. Although it’s currently possible to see the castle’s interior due to ongoing restoration works, you can still tour its dungeons and walk the castle grounds to admire its well-sculpted gardens.
Pidgoretsky Castle is located in Pidhirtsi village in Lviv region, 68 kilometers from Lviv.
