Have you ever been told the stories about famous generals who made their enemies tremble and shake in their shoes? And what about the nobles who were richer than the King and became patrons? Or about the most beautiful woman in Europe who spent half of her life imprisoned in a tower? These stories simply reveal the truth about the princes and princess of the powerful Ostroh dynasty. They ruled the area for centuries and influenced not only the history of Ukraine, but also all over Europe. The walls of medieval castles preserved in Dubno and Ostroh still remember their secrets and victories. Thus, nestled within Rivne Oblast, the calm and shadowy key stronghold of the powerful House of Ostroh is definitely worth the trip.
