==== ZHOVKVA – SIGHTSEEING

Zolkievski commissioned the castle to the best architect of the time, Pavlo Schaslyvyi (one who planned the whole ideal city). The castle has been built to resemble a fortress between 1594-1606 by captive Turks and Tatars, along with Ukrainian kozaks.

Dominican Cloister and Church and Little Wawel are also attraction for tourist here.
