“Simply stunning”

Kamenet's Podolsky Castle
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed August 8, 2018

The view of this castle from the road which leads up to it is simply stunning. This is not the easiest place to get to but it was well worth the trip. We were based in Chernivtsi and rather than sweat it out on a local bus, we decided to book a day trip with a tour company. The lady at the Chernivtsi tourist information office was extremely helpful and pointed us at a tour company a few doors away. The only tours for the next few days were in Ukrainian but we booked up anyway. The full day tour consisted of a visit to Khotyn castle (also absolutely amazing and well worth a visit) and KP castle and old town. Speaking no Ukrainian, we had no idea what the tour guide was saying but it was still worth it because we were taken to each of the sites in a nice air conditioned bus and didn't have to worry about working out the local bus times. We could wander about the sites by ourselves and take in the atmosphere. Both Khotyn and KP have small museums inside - no info in English though sadly. However both are astonishingly beautiful and quite unlike any other castles we've seen in Europe.

This was the best weekend ever. This city is so beautiful, ancient. We stopped in the small apartment in the footage of the tower and all this old castle was seemed to be ours. We walked for hours and the food was nor expensive but really delicious in this town.

Historical accounts date Kamianets-Podilskyi Castle to the early 14th century, although recent archaeological evidence has proved human existence in the area back to the 12th or 13th century.

The site is approached over a bridge. There is a toll to pay for cars. Entrance fee is 50 UAH adult. The buildings have been restored. Lots of very steep narrow steps within the towers. Activities for children eg archery. Disappointed to find they use a captive owl for tourists to photo.
