The city of Zholkva, located in the Lviv region, was built around a castle built at the end of the XVI century. near the village of Vinniki. In the beginning of XVIII century there was the residence of Peter I, and in 1772 the city came under Hapsburg rule. During world war I, Zholkva was periodically occupied by Russian troops, later it was transferred to the Polish Republic, and in 1939 it became part of the Ukrainian SSR.

The city was famous for its wood carvings. Walking through Zholkva, you can find many architectural attractions: the Church of St. Lawrence, the defense synagogue, the residence of Jan Sobieski and other structures.
