"Podgoretsky Castle is a well-preserved Renaissance palace surrounded by fortifications. The castle is located in the east of Lviv oblast in Podgortsy village. Together with Olesky and Zolochevsky castles it forms the “Golden Horseshoe of Ukraine” (tourist route of Lviv region castles).

The castle is a square from the east, south and west surrounded by lines of fortifications. At the site of today’s castle there were more ancient fortifications mentioned in 1530. Present Podgoretsky castle was built during 1635-1640.

The park of the castle is a part of unique view of the architectural ensemble. Podgoretsky park belongs to the monuments of landscape gardening art of national importance. Created on the level of the best examples of so-called “Italian” Parks, it is the best and almost the only park of this type in Ukraine. Photos by Sergey Nagorny.

"This wonderful city standing on Black Sea coast is often called the “Pearl of the South”. Odessa has special architectural style and special ambiance. Fortunately, most of the marvelous buildings that went up in Odessa during the 18th and 19th centuries were only partially damaged during World War II. That means Odessa retains the charm of yesteryear. Photos by horoshiyblog."

"Genoese fortress in Sudak (south-eastern Crimea) was constructed from 1371 to 1469. The fortress has the buildings of 6-15th centuries: the defensive walls and towers, castle, churches.
In the 11-12th centuries the town became a major center of international trade. Since the end of the 13th century Italian city-republics of Genoa and Venice were struggling for the town, and in 1365 it came under the control of the Genoese. The bulk of surviving to the present day architecture refers to the Genoese period. Photos by Konstantin Brizhnichenko."

Very beautiful and inspiring music with this one.

"Everyone knows the symbol of the United States - the Statue of Liberty. But do you know that there is Ukrainian Statue of Liberty in Lviv? The people also call it lazy statue. It is placed on the facade of the State Museum of Ethnography of Ukraine located at Svobody (Liberty) Avenue, 15. The photo was taken by Oleg Grigoryev."
