Halshany Castle

6.1/10

Halshany or Holszany Castle (Belorussian: Гальшанскі замак) is the ruined residence of the Sapieha magnate family in Halshany, Hrodna Voblast, Belarus. It was erected in the early 17th century in place of an older seat of the Holszanski princely family.

Also known as the Black Castle (although it is built of red brick), the residence formerly rivaled Mir Castle as the most elegant private château of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania.

The castle was devastated by the invading Swedes in 1704 and, due to financial stress experienced by the Sapiehas in the wake of the Domestic War, has never been restored.

Князі Гальшанскія валодалі замкам да 1525 г., а потым, пасля шлюбу князёўны Алены Гальшанскай з Паўлам Сапегам, ён перайшоў ва ўладанні Сапегаў.

Милые разваливающиеся развалины. Интересно побродить и позабираться внутрь.
