Kamianets-Podilskyi is a small, historic city in western Ukraine.
Its historic centre is surrounded on three sides by the Smotrych river, while a castle is strategically placed on a hill overlooking the narrow isthmus giving access to the old town. The castle was originally built in wood between the 10th and 13th centuries, then later rebuilt in stone in the 16th century. It is restaurated and open for tourists.
In the old town there are a number of churches, including the St Peter and Paul cathedral and the church of St Nicholas. In the past Kamianets-Podilskyi was populated by ethnic Poles.
The modern part of Kamianets-Podilskyi lies mainly to the east and north of the historic centre. The picturesque Alexander Nevsky Orthodox cathedral was originally built in 1897 and completely restored in 2000.
