Lutsk sightseeing tour + Lubart's castle

Lutsk is one of the most ancient cities of the Western Ukraine, founded in 11 century. It has been an important political and cultural center of Volyn ever since. The architectural ensemble of the city combines important historical buildings in the central part with modern residential blocks.Provisionally Lutsk is divided to Old and New City. Old City is a historical and architectural preserve, where architectural monuments of XII-XVIII centuries are located, of which the Upper Lutsk castle is among the ten oldest fortifications in Western Europe.

Old City contains Theater Square (the Maydan Teatralnyy) often referred to as «the center», Catholic cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul, Orthodox Holy Intercession church, where worships are held now, neo-Gothic Lutheran church, Jewish synagogue and many more.

New City spread out in the new neighborhoods built in 1970-80-ies, where most residents live.

The highlight of the tour is a visit of an outstanding Lubart’s Castle.This perfectly preserved fort, standing majestically in the center of Lutsk, long ago became the town’s symbol and its citizens’ pride. Lubart Castle is a remarkable example of medieval fortification architecture, one of the oldest in not only Ukraine, but all of Europe. This stone castle on the Styr River was built in 1340. Lithuanian prince Lubart constructed it to replace the wooden fortification that stood here for over two centuries, making it his residence. Many rulers envied the castle’s fortifications, and for over 600 years it withstood dozens of sieges, remaining in a great condition until today. Nowadays, on the castle’s territory lie an underground gallery and several interesting museums. Among the most unique are the Building Ceramic Museum, the Ancient Weapon Museum, the Books Museum, and the Ancient Bells Museum – the only one in Ukraine.
