About this place

Kamianets-Podilskyi Fortress and Old Town is one of the most popular destinations in Ukraine. It is about 1000 years old and has very color history. Modern Kamianets-Podilskyi was first mentioned in 1062 as a town of the Kievan Rus' state. In 1241, it was destroyed by the Mongolian invaders. In 1352, it was annexed by the Polish King Casimir III. In 1378 it became seat of a Roman Catholic Diocese. In 1432 King Sigismund I the Old granted Kamieniec Podolski city rights. In 1434 it became the capital of the Podolian Voivodship and the seat of local civil and military administration. The ancient castle was reconstructed and substantially expanded by the Polish kings to defend Polandfrom the southwest against Ottoman and Tatar invasions, thus it was called the gateway to Poland.
