Excursion to Dubno

On the Border of Two Empires

Busk Brody Tarakaniv Dubno

During this tour we will visit some interesting towns situated on the border of two great empires of the times of the First World War - the Habsburg Empire and Czarist Russia. Our first stop is near the well-preserved palace of the Prime Minister of Austro-Hungaria Count Badeni in "Galician Venice" the town of Busk. Next we go to the border Galician town of Brody, where among other historical and architectural monuments we examine the castle-fortress (17th c.)

Our next stop is a unique Tarakaniv frontier-post wrapped in a shroud of mystery, located near Dubno. The opening ceremony of this border post in 1890 visited Russian emperor Olekskandr III. It is not surprising that more than hundred years this building attracts many connoisseurs of military architecture from different countries.

In Dubno we examine ancient Lutsk Gate (16th c.), the Bernardine monastery (17th c.), picturesque Transfiguration Church., St. Illya Cathedral (early 20th c.), George Cathedral (18th c.), Jan Nepomuk Cathedral (early 20th c.), the Carmelite Monastery (17th c.). We finish our tour at the castle of Ostrog (15th - 17th c.). If you wish, we can have a lunch in the restaurant near the castle.

The duration of excursion depends on your wishes (from 10 hours).
