Khust Castle, ruins

The Khust Castle (Ukrainian: Хустський замок; Hungarian: Huszti vár) is an abandoned castle located in the city of Khust in Zakarpattia Oblast (province) in western Ukraine.

The former Hungarian castle lays on a 150-meter high mountain near the center of the city.[1]

The construction of the castle is believed to have started around 1090, during the reign of the Hungarian King St. Ladislaus I and it was finished in 1191, under the Béla III.[2]

The castle was built as a fortress to protect the salt road from Solotvyno, including the Khust Gate, and the border areas.
