formerly Tarnopol, city and administrative centre of
Ternopil oblast (region) in Western Ukraine. It was part
of Austrian Habsburg empire from 1772 until 1918 and it

Austrain empire in 1918, it was part of short lived ZUNR

September 1939 it was taken by soviet troops and annexed
to the USSR. It became part of Ukrainian Soviet Socialist

Built in 1540. Since the time of its establishment it had been demolished and rebuilt many times. In the beginning of the 19 th century castle was reconstructure into a palace and because of that all its fortifications were removed then. In 1954 fundamental renovation was made. The existing building is the result of complex reconstruction of 19 th century, and includes ancient nucleous of defensive castle of 16 th century.
