Modern historians claim that according to official data, over 5,000 ancient castle structures are documented throughout the territory of Ukraine. Some of them are in good condition and are open to tourists. But there are also such castles from which remained in ruins or completely disappeared from the face of the earth, leaving about themselves mentions in historical documents. Fortunately, the Radomysl castle is not among them. He managed to resist and survive very difficult times, preserving his uniqueness and history for the modern generation.
The history of the castle Radomysl
According to historical data and during the restoration work, it was established that earlier on this site was located a paper mill, which was supposedly built in 1612-1615.
The founder of the structure was Elisha Pletnetsky, who also was a well-known archimandrite of Kiev-Pechersk Lavra. For a long time the monks were looking for a suitable place for the future factory, until they found this paradise protected by nature itself.
The castle was erected on a granite rock surrounded by water and a magnificent coniferous forest.
From a defensive point of view, this beat the impregnable building, none of the enemies could capture it, except Bogdan Khmelnitsky, before whom the mighty walls could not stand.
In 1902, this place was a mill, which served the nearby population points.
After 1989, the mill ceased to function, turning into another abandoned and unnecessary dark building.
