General information about Book and Printing Museum (Lutsk Tower) (Ostroh)

The Lutsk Tower in Ostroh was a key defensive element of the lower city, also serving as the entrance gate to Lutsk. This is one of the two surviving towers of the outer city fortifications.

Currently, the room is adapted for the exposition of the Book and Printing Museum (in 1580 Ivan Fedorov created a printing house in Ostroh, which published the first "Reading Book" and the first complete Slavic Ostroh Bible). There are also temporary exhibitions.

Луцька вежа в Острозі була ключовим оборонним елементом нижнього міста, виконуючи також функцію в'їзної брами з боку Луцька. Це одна з двох веж зовнішніх міських укріплень, що збереглися.

В даний час приміщення вежі пристосоване для експозиції музею книги та друкарства (в 1580 році Іван Федоров створив в Острозі друкарню, в якій було видано першу "Читанку" та першу повну слов'янську Острозьку Біблію). Також відбуваються тимчасові виставки.
