Largest castle in Ukraine


A tour to the 12 century castle in Bilhorod-Dnestrovsky. It dates back to 6 century B. C. It was built on the ruins of the ancient Greek colony. There are open archaeological sites with ancient artefacts. The castle is the largest in Ukraine, stretching over 9 acres of land. It's situated on the Black sea shore. Four large towers, three inside yards with the falls from 5 to 15 meters in height. The drive there and back takes about an hour each way, but it's very picturesque, over the bridges stretched over lagoons, and through Ukrainian villages.
