Lutsk is an ancient city in western Ukraine, founded in the 10th-11th centuries. It preserves the architectural monuments of the Middle Ages and Modern Time, the defensive castle of the XIV century, and numerous churches of the XVI-XVII centuries.

The architecture of Lutsk reflects the city’s religious diversity; there are numerous Orthodox and Catholic churches in Lutsk, and also a majestic Lutheran Church, a Synagogue of the 17th century, and dozens of other architectural monuments.

Lutsk, fortunately, has not suffered artillery shelling under the Russian invasion. But the missile attacks on the city’s infrastructure facilities create a significant danger to both architectural monuments and the city residents.
