Brief note: Svirzh Castle is located in the district of Peremyshlyansk in Lviv region. It was first mentioned. At that time, the castle belonged to the Svirzh family. It was substantially rebuilt for Alexander Tsetner in the first half of the 17th century and belonged to his descendants until the 19th century. At that period, it acquired a palace appearance. The castle suffered the greatest damage during the First World War - it was burned down by Russian troops. In 1917, it was rebuilt by the next owner — General Robert Lamezan-Salins. The last restoration works were carried out in the 1970-1980s.
