General information about Korets Castle (Korets)

The ruins of Korets Castle with a distinctive tower over the gate of red brick are the hallmark of the city.

The first wooden fortification was built in the 15th century above the Korchyk river by Prince Ostrozki. Later, the castle passed into the possession of Volyn Voivode Bohdan Koretskyi, who strengthened it with stone walls with towers and bastions, surrounded by an earthen rampart and a moat filled with water from the river.

In the 18th century, the fortress buildings became the basis for the construction of the palace complex of the Czartoryski princes. In 1832, the palace burned down and has not been rebuilt since then.

Руїни Корецького замку з виразною надбрамною баштою червоної цеглини є візитною карткою міста.

Перше дерев'яне укріплення спорудив у XV сторіччі над над річкою Корчик князь Острозький. Пізніше замок перейшов у володіння волинського воєводи Богдана Корецького, який зміцнив його кам'яними стінами з баштами та бастіонами, обведеними земляним валом та ровом, що наповнювався водою з річки.

В XVIII сторіччі фортечні споруди стали основою для будівництва палацового комплексу князів Чарторийских. В 1832 році палац згорів і з того часу не відновлювався.

Збереглися трирівнева надбрамна вежа, прилеглі до неї руїни зовнішніх стін палацових споруд, а також трипилонний чотириарковий міст (реконструйований останніми роками).
