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.
