Toky Castle

This was a little unique castle that was interesting for very different reasons. We both were amazed by the amount of “graffiti” or carvings in the castle walls. Not much of the castle exists to this day but what is there has been marked with names and dates that go back to before the first World War. There are quite a few carvings that would have been put on the castle during WW1.

Originally built in the 16th century it was attacked many times until finally the Cossacks destroyed it. What you see was rebuilt in the 18th century. The castle name was changed when the border between the Russian and Austrian Empires split the town that the castle was located in thus creating a new town that the castle was now a part of.
