Olesko Castle

Olesko


On a tour to the oldest Ukrainian castle (first mentioned in 1327), you will hear the amazing and mystical birth story of the Polish King Jan III Sobieski.

You will hear a romantic legend about the ghosts of two lovers, who are still looking for each other, wandering along the dark corridors. Another story about the unlucky owner of the castle, who almost destroyed it while searching the treasure, will certainly amuse you.

The galleries of the castle offers a wonderful view of the surrounding meadows, which has not changed for the past century.

Pidhirtsi Castle

Pidhirtsi


Pidhirtsi Castle is often called the “Polish Versailles”. No wonder that it “played the role” of the Louvre in the film adaptation of the “The Three Musketeers” novel by A. Dumas.

The castle has its own mystical history. It houses the ghost of the White Lady who was the wife of one of its owners. The guide will tell you her sad story, and, perhaps, the Lady herself will appear for a few moments.

There was a time when the castle was considered one of the best palace and castle complexes in Europe, and even now it is striking in its grandeur.

Zolochiv Castle

Zolochiv


A royal palace, a school, a court, and a prison – it’s all about Zolochiv Castle, which served for different purposes during its long and difficult history.

Two wonderful Renaissance palaces served as the residence of Polish kings for a few centuries. And the Chinese Palace, the castle’s pearl, was built by Jan III for his beloved wife.

After seeing them, do not deny the pleasure of strolling through the beautiful late Renaissance style garden.

We did the beer tour in Kiev. Five beers in five different bars for two of us and our guide. That was a great chance to hang out with some locals, get to know the history and city a bit more, all while enjoying some of the unique local beers you can only find in Kiev. Our guide was very knowledgeable and great company and we had a fantastic evening! Highly recommended!

Highly recommend taking a tour with Wonders & Holidays. I learned so much about Ukrainian history that I wouldn't have on my own and the tour guides feel like friends (rather than just guides). I went on the Kiev in 180 minutes sightseeing tour with Igor and it was such a great experience. He was an excellent guide not only did he explain the history so well, but also answered any related or unrelated questions about Kiev and Ukraine. Both Igor and our driver Gestutas were so personable, accommodating, kind and professional - I hope I get the chance to go back again to take another tour with them.
