Also preserved is the Round (New) Tower (XVI century) with a Renaissance crown of teeth, from the foot of which you can see the domes of the monastery in Mezhyrich. On the territory of the castle is the ancient Epiphany Cathedral (1453), whose silhouette was the coat of arms of the city. Under the Catholics, the church was partially destroyed, one wall with loopholes was included in the castle's fortification system. At the end of the XIX century the cathedral was reconstructed in a pseudo-Byzantine style designed by architect Bazylevsky, the baths received a characteristic gilding. In 1905 the Gate Bell Tower was built. The church is in operation and belongs to the UOC-MP.
