a homage to the 17th century fashion

the Chinese House, a homage to the 17th century fashion, is the pride of the Zolochiv Castle complex. it is one of only three remaining Chinese Houses (sometimes also called Palaces) preserved in Europe - Palacio de Oranienbaum (Lomonosovo, Russia) and Sanssouci Park (Potsdam, Germany).

monument of 17th century defense architecture

the Zolochiv castle is an outstanding monument of 17th century defense architecture (neo-Dutch bastion-type defense). Fortunately, it has been preserved almost unchanged and is now Europe?s only structure of the type (see my tip on the Zolochiv Castle).

a templar trace

one of three stones that have been shipped to the castle from Novosilky village, the site of 14 century castle. the stone has inscriptions that are believed to be of the Templar origin (see my tip for more info).
