The Castel was repeatedly extended and rebuilt; its final stage emerged in the middle of the
16th century.

Bakota - a picturesque place, where thanks to a mountainous landscape hidden from the northern colds and the abounding river, the soft microclimate is created and it promotes the growth of relic plants and medicinal grasses.
The Fate of Bakota has been largely majestic and tragic! In 12th century it was destined to become the capital of Galicia-Volyn principality. In 1255 the governor Melanie treacherously sold to the city to Mongol-Tatar invaders. All the surrounding territory was plundered destroying the castle. Bakota become the center of the ulus for a whole century. After a victory on Dark blue Waters territory (nowadays called Podolia) it belonged to the Lithuainian princes of Koriatovicham. In 1431-1434 the Bakota parish villagers rebelled against the feudal lords. They succeeded and they were declared as free men.
You will see the white mountain, which rises 120 meters above the water level with a view that takes your breath away! In the rock there are ancient cells with niches for graves and three medicinal springs with unusually tasty water. And also you will see a smooth water surface of a gulf, the area of 850 hectares shaped like a horseshoe. The mountain scenery is magnificent withs its air of
smelling herbs and flowers.
