Overview

Zbarazh Castle is one of the masterpieces of the fortification of the Ternopil region, widely known thanks to the events connected with the national liberation struggle of Ukrainian Cossacks, led by Hetman Bohdan Khmelnytsky.A fortified settlement has existed in Zbarazh in medieval times (original fortress is attributed to 1211), but after the destruction of the Mongol-Tatars for many centuries it wasn’t restored. Only in 1626, it was decided to build a strong castle-fortress on the castle hill, which had contributed to the defense of the city from the Russian troops, and the troops of the expanding Ottoman Empire, supported by the Crimean khan.
