These ruins you can see in Ivano-Frankivsk region, in the Ukrainian
Carpathians  (yes , the same famous Dracula mountains).The castle was laid
on the high hill near the Bystrytsa river. It is pentagonal with 4 towers in
the corners (the towers are round )and has triangular projection on the east
side with 2 rows of arrow-slits. It was build in 15th-16th cc, lost its
functions in the beginning of the 19th c. The castle was considered to be
one of the strongest fortresses in Western Ukraine.

 Dear Lucy,  I'm so glad to see all my messages on your site! But I'm NOT Sergey Gnap- he is my bellowed hubby, and his mail-box is much more better than mine. The castle that is under the name "Ivano" is called Pniv.
Thanx!
