Skałat - Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, now Ukraine



The castle was founded in ca.1600 by the Sienieński noble family (Dębno coat of arms). In 1602, Skałat was purchased by the Chodkiewicz family. Twelve years later, Skałat was in the hands of the Korecki family, and in 1627, it was purchased by Krzysztof Wichrowski, the miecznik of Halicz.

Wichrowski expanded the castle, and in 1632 founded a Roman Catholic parish. His daughter Weronika married into the Firlej family, and Skałat was her dowry. The castle was destroyed during the Khmelnytsky (Chmielnicki) Rebellion.

Skałat was again destroyed in 1675, during the Polish–Ottoman War (1672–76). The town, which was in ruins, recovered very slowly. In the late 17th century, Jan Firlej renovated the castle, making it his residence with a palace, built inside its walls. In the early 18th century, Skałat belonged to the Kalinowski family, and in 1766 King of Poland Stanisław August Poniatowski confirmed its town charter.

The residence contained about 100 rooms, library (with valuable documents dating back to the 14th-15th century), paintings by Anthony van Dyck, Peter Paul Rubens, Raphael, Rembrandt and Titian.

Brody - Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, now Ukraine



The first castle (as well as town) was founded by Stanisław Żółkiewski in the 1580s. Polish Crown Hetman Stanisław Koniecpolski acquired Brody in 1629 and built the castle bastion of a new type between 1630 and 1635 under the supervision of Italian architect Andrea del Aqua and based on a design by Guillaume Le Vasseur de Beauplan. The castle was pentagonal in plan and included five bastions and curtain walls, that had octagon-formed dungeons in the middle. It was surrounded by the deep moat. The total number of casemats in the castle was 75, they were used as barracks and warehouses.

The castle and the fortress withstood a siege by Cossack troops, that lasted several weeks in 1648. In the late 1660s the castle was renovated and thank to this the locals could hide there during Turkish campaigns in 1672 and in 1676. The castle was acquired in 1704 by the Potocki family. Count Potocki reconstructed the castle for his own residence in Rococo style.

Stare Sioło - Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, now Ukraine



The fortress, almost triangular in shape, with 15-metre high walls and a ceremonial gate on the south side, was commissioned by Władysław Dominik Zasławski (brother-in-law of King of Poland Jan III Sobieski). The citadel was erected in 1649-54 and formerly contained the palatial residence and Roman Catholic chapel. After Władysław Dominik Zasławski died in Stare Sioło in 1656, the fortress gradually fell into disrepair, although it successfully withstood a siege by the Turks in 1674. Over the years, Stare Sioło was owned by the Lubomirski, Sieniawski, Czartoryski and Potocki families, but it never returned to its former glory.

Unfortunately, there seems to be no hope for complex restorations in the predictable future.
There is also a problem with perception of those relics from the past among Ukrainian population.
Not so long ago I saw an Ukrainian TV-show "rich and famous"-like, where one of the participants was showing with pride the collection of art located in his penthouse in Kiev. Half of that collection were the figures of saints ripped off from the church walls somewhere in western Ukraine.
I emphasize - it was a show broadcasted by public TV, and the guy was presented as an example of good taste in modern interiors décor

Budzanów - Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, now Ukraine

The settlement was founded in 1549 on the banks of the Seret River. The village was named after a Polish nobleman, Jakub Budzanowski, Halicz voivode. Mountainous terrain of the region always attracted new settlers and about 1550 a wooden castle was built up on the peak of one of the hills. The castle was rebuilt by Jan and Marcin Chodorowski in the beginning of 17th century. The castle was ruined by the Turks in 1675. In 1765 Maria Potocka, a Polish countess, founded a Catholic church on the castle's ruins.

Interesting fact - in 1772 (before the partitions of Poland), there were 838 Roman Catholic churches within Lwów Archdiocese.

Buczacz - Crown of the Kingdom of Poland, now Ukraine



The castle was built by the Buczacki noble family in the second half of the 14th century. The Buczacki family also founded the first Roman Catholic church (1379) in the town and obtained the Magdeburg rights from King of Poland Władysław II Jagiełło (1393). When the last member of the Buczacki family died, the castle became the property of the Golski and then, the powerful Potocki family.

Buczacz Castle was damaged by the Turks in 1675 and again in 1676. In 1699, Jan Potocki began reconstruction of the fortress. After partitions of Poland, the castle was abandoned and the nearby residents tore down the walls for building materials over the next centuries.
