Zolochiv Castle was a residence of the Sobieski

Zolochiv Castle was a residence of the Sobieski noble family on a hill at the confluence of two small rivers in the south-eastern part of Zolochiv, Galicia.

The rectangular fort was built in 1634-36 by Jakub Sobieski using the labor of enslaved Crimean Tatars.

The Sobieski castle comprised solid walls in a then-current Dutch style, with four pentagonal towers at each corner, and the so-called “grand palace”.
