We were advised to pay a visit to the Bastion, a fortress gallery, which was built around the remains of the ancient wall of the Stanislav Castle. The bastion includes a terrace for walks and a gallery. There are many souvenir shops, stores with clothes, perfumes, as well as a cafe, a restaurant, a contemporary art gallery. This place is also a public venue for different meetings and exhibitions.

The fortress was built in 1662 on the order of Count Andrzej Potocki, the Governor of Galicia.

The architects of the new Bastion Mall successfully combined the remnants of a defensive structure with a new complex, which was built in 2002. This is where you can come across some interesting artistic event. Various exhibitions of arts are constantly represented here: photographs, paintings, graphics, sculptures, etc. We did not see any presentation or festival there; we simply went window shopping and admired the wrought iron sculptures. They were left in the Bastion as reminders of the traditional Blacksmiths’ Festivals.
