We are heading to Olesko: the oldest of the preserved castles in this region. Here the king of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth Jan ІІІ Sobiesky was born and Bogdan-Zinoviy Khmelnitsky spent his childhood here. The castle has a museum with unique paintings, sculptures, furniture.
The next castle is Pidhirtsi, built for the Great Crown Hetman Stanislav Konetspolski by the French architect Andre del Aqua and the Marquis Guillaume Levasseur de Beauplan in 1630. Podgoretsky castle was considered one of the most beautiful in Europe. We visit Zolochiv Castle, a fortress of the "Dutch" style (1634 - the end of construction), which was built by Jakub Sobieski, a participant in the Battle of Khotin and the father of King Jan Sobieski. High earthen ramparts with escarpments remained here. In the castle, there are two palaces: the Royal Palace and the Chinese Palace (one of three in Europe).
