Operation: year round
Built in the middle of the 17th century, the Zolochiv castle is one of the best preserved manors in the Lviv region. Once a royal residence, a retreat for Marie Casimirie, a French-born Polish Queen, nowadays it is a ground for museums of the Lviv Art Gallery. Among other, the palace boasts the most advanced 17th century sewage and heating system, and secret passages beneath. Recently found mysterious rocks with the 14th century inscriptions are exposed in the museum. The Zolochiv Castle visit is included to the popular Lviv Golden Horseshoe route and makes a story of the three beautiful medieval fiefs complete.

Unipress not only anticipated all my needs, it was sensitive to my desires and flexible in cheerfully providing just the services I requested and no more, making the trip flawless from the first train ride to the final escort to the airport. Tanya, Igor and their staff are caring as well as competent and reliable It's a joy to work with them and I can highly recommend their services.
