Last autumn my mam and I visited my sister in Lviv.
And we had an excursion to Lviv high Castle.
Lviv Castle Hill is a historic castle located on the top of the Castle Hill of the city of Lviv.
It is currently the highest point in the city, 413 meters above sea level.
The castle today stands in ruins, but from here an amazing landscape is opened to all corners of Lviv to a thousands of tourists from all over the world every year.
The High Castle is located in close proximity of the historic center of city.
Formerly it was surrounded by a fortification wall.
The castle was used as a main defensive fort of the Lviv from the 13th century to the late 19th century.
The first fortifying structures appeared on the Castle Hill in the time of Halych-Volhynia, and were built by Leo I Halych from wood and soil.
The castle was rebuilt and repaired many times.
It was finally destroyed in the 19th c.
