About this tour

In Zalishchyki, from the observation deck, we will see a unique natural phenomenon called the Dniester meander.

This is a huge horseshoe bend in the river. The bend of the channel in one place is almost 360 degrees.

Visually, it seems that the town of Zalishchyki is located on an island.


Then an incredibly picturesque place awaits us in Podilla, where a unique natural and architectural wonder has been created in the crater of the Juryn River canyon.

There you will find the 16-meter Dzhurynsky waterfall and the picturesque ruins of the palace (XVIII century), to which the red road will lead you.

Let's end our day deliciously at the snail farm.

Chervonogorodsky castle

Defensive structures of the disappeared city of Chervonogorod, in the first half of the 19th century, were converted into a palace. The ruins are located near the village of Nyrkov, Zalishchitsky district, Ternopil region, in the "Chervone" tract, on a steep hill in the middle of a deep basin of the Dzhurinka River, which forms an almost closed loop in this place. The wooden castle was built by Russian princes. In 1241, the Mongol-Tatars destroyed it, but there is no mention of this in the ancient Russian chronicles. Before the First World War, the palace had an exquisite Italian-style terrace and a colonnade with 6 stone columns and was surrounded by a large landscaped park with a fountain.
