Svirzh Castle – the view from above

Svirzh Castle, a unique monument of defensive architecture of the 15th-17th centuries, is located in the village of Svirzh in Peremyshlyany district of the Lviv region.

Built as a fortress, the castle lost its original appearance after the reconstruction carried out in the 17th century. Despite its advantageous location – on a hill surrounded by marshes and lakes – this palace-castle could hardly have a significant defensive value.

The Antonov An-225 “Mriya” (meaning “dream” in Ukrainian) is the largest and heaviest aircraft that ever flew in the sky. Maximum take-off weight of the aircraft is 640 tons.

Mala Rostivka is a small village with a population of about 200 people located in Oratovsky district of the Vinnitsa region. Tourists rarely visit this remote place that has one of the best preserved palaces in the region.

The history of the palace is very vague. The only thing that is known is that it was built by the general of the Russian army Zabotin in the early 20th century. Mala Rostivka on Google Maps. Photos by: Maxim Ritus.
