Lutsk High Castle, also known as Lubart's Castle

Lutsk, Lutsk Raion, Volyn Oblastnorth, western Ukraine.

 

Lubart's Castle began its life in the mid-14th century as the fortified seat of Gediminas' son Liubartas (Lubart), the last ruler of united Galicia-Volhynia. It is the most prominent landmark of Lutsk, Ukraine and appears on the 200 hryvnia bill.

 

The current castle, towering over the Styr River, was built mostly in the 1340s, although some parts of the earlier walls were used. It repelled sieges by numerous potentates, Three main towers, named after Lubart, Švitrigaila and the Bishop, were built in the course of the 16th and 17th centuries.

 

The walls of the castle formerly enclosed St. John's Cathedral, the residence of the Grand Duke of Lithuania, and an episcopal palace. Of these buildings, only the Neoclassical palace of the bishops still stands. 1,160 Jews were murdered within the walls of the castle on July 2, 1941.
