  • The stone fortress was built in 1360 (1366). But in 1534, because of the Tatars attacks, it was reconstructed and enforced. Period of 1605-1625, when the Tatars attacked it for 15 times, was the hardest for the fortress. A new castle was built in 1632, namely its ruins (towers, walls) survived until today.
    The castle lost its defensive role in 1688, but till today it has its own basements and caves with legends and treasures...
    During the Polish-Turkish war in 1675 it was Sophia, the wife of the local commandant (actually, Anna Dorothy von Frezen), who saved the fortress from the Turkish siege.
