Lubart's Castle from Lutsk | Луцьк, Ukraine

Lutsk is one of the most ancient cities of Ukraine. Its historical centre is located near the river Styr and the name come from the old Ukrainian word “luka”, i.e. a meadow, a flood-land place in a river arch.

Lutsk High Castle, also known as Lubart's Castle, began its life in the mid-14th century as the fortified seat of Gedymin's son Lubart, the last ruler of united Galicia-Volhynia. It is the most prominent landmark of Lutsk, Ukraine and as such appears on the 200 hryvnia bill.
