For the weekend - in Kamenetz-Podolsk

This morning they returned from Kamenetz-Podolsk. Excited!

Old castle, Khotyn fortress, Smotrich and Dniester canyons, buildings of the Old Town, churches, churches, monasteries, town hall, the Running Fallow deer bridge and much more that I forgot to mention. We did not manage to cover everything, and there is a reason for the next trip.

For the weekend - in Kamenetz-Podolsky - image number 1 It is very convenient to get there: train No. 623, departs from Kiev at 20-52 (we left on Friday, just had time to come home from work and get together), in Kamyanets-Podilsky at 7-06 the next day. We drove back 624, in Kiev were 5-35. There were no problems with tickets, they took 10 days, coupe - about 30 UAH. per person.

We got there by two families, five of us: 4 adults and our four-year-old boyfriend (Nikita on all difficult descents in the fortress gave Aunt Oksana a hand so that she would not fall). And on the 14th, Oksana was just having a birthday, so the trip was timed to that date, because unfairly the hero of the occasion was standing at the stove at home in Kiev at this heat all day.

For the weekend - in Kamenetz-Podolsky - image number 2 A few words about the hotel. They are there 5 pieces: 3 public and 2 private.We went around everything and chose a private one in the city center (the Ariana company rents a floor in the Smotrich hotel). Prices are very reasonable: a double room with fresh repair, new furniture, hot water and a view of the old city cost 80 UAH per day. We had breakfast and dined at the Karabas-Barabas cafe right in front of the hotel’s entrance. And we had dinner and celebrated Jam Day at the Oscars, a very decent restaurant with private booths and good (fast!) Service. The prices for everything surprised and touched: a minibus of 0.50 UAH, a taxi from the hotel to the railway station 3 UAH, lunch for five in a cafe with first courses, second, salads, dessert, juice and beer about 38-43 UAH. In the old city, the mass of the most interesting buildings, old houses. In the basement of the Town Hall Museum of the Inquisition (eerie sight). There is still an archaeological museum, we went there. In the Old Fortress itself there are also several halls with military figures, monks, Turks, etc.

For the weekend - in Kamenets-Podolsky - image №3 In the evening we rode on the observation wheel (we highly recommend, the view of the Old Town is wonderful!), They shot at the shooting dash (Nikita liked it so much that he brought his father there the next day), walked in the local botanical garden where they were the only visitors. And on Sunday we went to Khotyn.It is about 25 km from Kamenetz-Podolsk. By taxi 25 UAH. + simple 10 UAH / hour. But an hour is not enough, and even two. We wandered there for 3 hours, and next time I would like to go for the whole day.

The fortress is very impressive. Tall walls, towers with loopholes, loose shafts and fortification walls. The movie "The Ballad of the Valiant Knight Ivanhoe" was filmed here. Near the fortress flows the Dniester. The castle is, of course, less well-groomed than in Kamenetz-Podolsky, but no less mysterious. And inside there is a princely palace, and barracks, and a church, and a well, and cellars, and even a mini-museum of the Khotyn war.

By the evening, although we were all in sneakers, the legs were already "buzzing." Heels would bypass no more than 30% of what he saw. Nikita moved on a par with everyone, 20 minutes was enough for him in the afternoon (on the first day he slept in the dad's hands at the botanical garden, the second time in the car on the road from Khotin) to recover and walk, run, climb until 22-23 hours.
Impressions and information, and with it, a huge positive charge received for a long time. Plus, so that all this is not erased in the "sclerotic" memory, an hour of video and 5 films.

On the WWW.TOVTRY.KM.UA site, we found a lot of interesting things about Kamenets and its surroundings, about historical and natural monuments (the Ukrainian version works normally).
