Khotyn Fortress

Khotyn Fortress is situated on the picturesque bank of the Dniester river in the town of Khotyn, just in 25 km from Kamianets-Podilskyi. We went to Khotyn by bus and asked the driver in advance to drop us near the fortress. It's a 15-minute walk from the bus stop to the viewpoint. It's not easy to find the fortress, so try to ask local people where is "zamok Khotyn" or take a taxi.

There are not many tourists in Khotyn, so you may even be the only one visitor.

Before visiting the fortress we decided to walk over the hills around it.

In 2007 the fortress was among the winners of the Seven Wonders of Ukraine contest.

The fortress has not changed since 2007. Various tourist infrastructure appeared near the entrance to the complex: restaurants, tour guides and souvenirs. We arrived at 6:30 in the morning to see the sunrise, as it is  is breathtaking here.

On the territory you can see some stray dogs, but seems they are friendly.

Getting there: Either by bus from the Kamianets-Podilskyi bus station or by taxi. You need a bus to Khotyn, but not to the end station. Ask the driver to stop near the Khotyn fortress ("khotynska fortetsia" or "khotyn zamok"), then you need to walk about 1 km. Use a map or ask locals. If you get to the bus station, then take a taxi for $1.5 to the fortress.
