This coin commemorate a bastioned castle that was the subject of historical events in Halych lands. Erected in the first half of the 17th century, Zolochiv Castle is a fortification constructed in a then-current Dutch style. Sitting on a small hill, the castle was used both for defense and living in it, being a “palazzo” of the “fortezzo” type. The castle features the following fortifications: ramparts, bastions, a tower above the gates, a bridge, and a ravelin. It also boasts some Renaissance buildings – the entry tower, the Grand Palace and the Chinese Palace – one of the few examples of Oriental architecture in Ukraine. Zolochiv Castle is an open-air museum that belongs to Borys Voznytskyi Lviv National Art Gallery, and is one of the castles on Lviv’s golden horse-shoe tourist route (the route derives its name from the location of the castles, which form a horse-shoe on the map).
