Radomysl Castle in Ukraine is a historical and cultural foundation which was renovated in 2007–2011 by Olga Bogomolets MD, a Ukrainian doctor and public activist. The castle is reconstructed on an old flour mill built in Radomysl (Zhytomyr region, Ukraine) in the late 19th century by Polish engineer Piekarski. The mill was constructed upon the ruins of a paper mill built in 1612 by the order of the archimandrite (abbot) of Kyiv-Pecherska Lavra Yelisey Pletenecki (1550–1624).Since 2011, Radomysl Castle is the part of the Council of Europe’s cultural way Via Regia, which purposes to promote cultural buildings and churches for tourism between European countries.
Castle-Museum is an architectural, historical and cultural jewel of Polissia. In 1612 here a Paper Mill was built - a fortified factory for the production of paper for printing of Kiev-Pechersk Lavra. Majestic architectural complex, located between two waterfalls, is bounded on one side by the waters of the river Myky, from the other – by a huge lake. Around, like a thousand years ago – there is a coniferous forest, the air here is saturated with therapeutic essential oils.
After the restoration Radomysl Castle Museum is a fully restored medieval fortification with authentic reproduction of interiors of the XVII-XIX centuries. The Castle of total area of 2500 square meters has no man-made basement; it has been built on a granite rock, digging deep into the ground for kilometers, and is able to stand for centuries. Inside the Castle, thanks to the thick stone walls, throughout the year the same temperature of +18° is kept. It all affects the spirit of antiquity. The majestic walls, oak flooring to the ceiling, balconies, a concert hall and loopholes through which defenders shooted back from attackers years ago.
