Create an itinerary including Palanok Castle
Sitting on a hilltop above town, Palanok Castle saw use by several royal families and was later transformed into a prison. Dating back to the 1300s, the site was once a powerful fortress; 164 canons protected it and a moat with a wooden wall ran around the estate. You can explore the castle's gardens and enter its old humid chambers on your own, or ask for a guided tour. You'll have a chance to visit the mysterious complex of underground tunnels that connect 130 rooms. On a tour, you'll hear many tales and legends about the site. There's also a small history museum at the castle. Find out how to plan Mukacheve trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.

  • Really nice place with unforgotten views! Many interesting expositions. It's a little sorry for me that it's more the history of Hungarian not Ukrainian. However there was interesting visit.

  • Beautiful, well-preserved castle. Amazing views from the top. If you are really into history and fortress engineering I recommend taking a guided tour (300 UAH as of February 2022), ask at a cashdesk. Prepare your vaccination certificate, will be asked before entrance. In the castle there are some interesting exhibitions: historical, small arsenal, torture chamber, picture gallery. Also small souvenir shop (nothing fancy), small cafe with coffee and local wines, public WC - neat and clean.
  • Fantastic castle in the area. Has a great history behind. Hungarian history in Ukraine
